Dr. Jack Carter has spent the last two years investigating his wife's disappearance and his own memory loss, hoping to find Sarah alive and remove the suspicion that he had killed her. Now he knows, however, that she is dead and who killed her. This stunning revelation has shattered his sanity and sent his consciousness tumbling through space and time, struggling to understand why she was murdered. From the misty dawn of prehistoric Earth to the very end of the universe, Jack experiences slices of time ranging from his recent past to alternative paths of his future, from the birth of his daughter to the death of his friend, Dr. Martin Dyer. A mystery that has been millennia in the making unfolds before Jack as he learns of Cthulhu, the great Sleeper who lies dreaming in the lost city of R'lyeh, waiting the day when he can break free of his prison to consume the universe entire.

About the Author

At the age of eleven, Mr. Ballard began creating his own fictional worlds and inhabiting those worlds with eccentric characters. As an artist, graphic designer, web site designer, musician and author, he has spent decades enumerating a unique evolving vision of an absurd universe. His first four novels comprise a cyberpunk series called The Bridge Chronicles starring the amoral fixer of future Los Angeles, Artemis Bridge. The Bridge Chronicles in turn is one slice of cohesive universe that began as a pen-and-paper roleplaying game. Gary has also released a series of novellas based on the Cthulhu Mythos made famous by H.P. Lovecraft called The Stepping Stone Cycle. The final two books of the series have just been released. In addition, he has written two unsold screenplays based on the Bridge Chronicles series, and plans to adapt The Stepping Stone Cycle for television.

Mr. Ballard currently lives with his wife and dogs in the capitol of Mississippi, Jackson, where he continues to write, blog, compose music and play video games.
