...an asteroid miner learns to anticipate the past. A famous night watchman rewrites the multiple ends of future history. A lost prodigy unlocks the mystery of his dead mentors, while another one looks to build a bridge in an apocalypse that never happened. A ghost fights a god for the soul of the HMS Titanic. Where? Right here, right never. In Land Sea and Why, gaze upon an uncanny map through a dark and wondrous lens. Collecting more than 20 strange adventures in a place where scientific discovery has been abandoned for scientific despair, a place where the promise of human space travel has fallen to machinery, a place where Depression has set in: a place we call home. In that territory of forgotten promises and withering indifference a new portal waits be discovered by those who seek: a lost cellar door that, when unlocked, unleashes the fires of hope. Including the never-before-published novelette The Death March Mystery and short tale Asteroid Mine as well as the full contents of three separate anthologies: Monstrous Magic, Tales of the Haunted Titanic and Adventures in Paratime, Land Sea and Why is a collection for every last odd cynical optimist left on the planet: namely, you.
