Dr. Thaddeus Quentin is a brilliant scientist in search of lost components of Babbage's Difference Engine. To get it, he hires the help of 'Cracker' Jack Smith, a rough-and-tumble adventurer, ready to seek out any object...for a price. Circumstances bring them together and their quest brings them to the jungles of South America, where they are faced with the steam-powered, mechanical terror known only as... The Colossus.

The Colossus is a part of New York Times bestselling author Michael Stackpole's Chain Story. The Chain Story is a series of fiction from accomplished writers tied together by the common frame of The Wanderers' Club. This story appeared as the 19th tale in the chain.
