The age from which they spring has nearly drawn to a close. Yet some noble work remains to be done before the end. They come on, knowing that anything left undone, any chance let slide cannot be paid forward. Their game bags are heavy with a wealth meant to nourish the reader through the leanest of times. Four tales of a once-and-future apocalypse. Two meditations to challenge you to play harder in an already hard world. Introduced by Misha Burnett. Some say they are other than human; they are the penultimate men.
"A collection which diverges from today's consensus reality. The same feel as 30s science fiction before the tropes had hardened into clichés."
--David Drake, author of Northworld
