From Booklist Online:. Fans of fantasy, the paranormal, and science fiction alike will enjoy transporting themselves into his strange world of ghosts and alternate dimensions. From Locus:. Joe R. Lansdale and illustrator Timothy Truman have pushed the limits of reality and broken through a few in the longest, best adventure our beloved seal has even been on.
Ned and H. Wells, returning from correcting wounds in the fabric of time, not to mention a brief trip to an alternate Mars, have rescued two shipwreck survivors, Bongo Bill and Suzie Q. They have saved them from drowning or possibly being killed by alien invaders. In the process of jumping from one dimension to another, trying to discover a time path home, they find themselves in an inner world with a stationary sun.
It is full of primitive creatures, including dinosaurs, highly intelligent apes, cannibals, strange storms and bad hygiene. Deciding on a brief picnic and minor exploration before jumping to Victorian England, Ned and his friends end up saving a famous apeman from human-eating birds, and soon set out to assist the apeman, Tango, in stealing a Golden Fleece with curative powers, a fleece skinned from the body of a strange space traveler.
The fleece resides in a magnificent city, a kind of Shangri-La in the far Blue Mountains. Nothing seems to cure her, but the rumored miraculous powers of the Golden Fleece just might.

She has grown to great size. She has invented rolling machines that maul the trees and crush the earth, blend rocks and bones, blood and jungle into one vast wasteland. She has gained terrible powers, and lost all connection to humanity. Her whole purpose is chaos, and she has gathered an army to help her do just that.
She has destroyed the villages she has come across and enslaved the inhabitants. She and her army are heading in the direction of the Blue Mountains, to the fabled city that contains the Golden Fleece. Come now to the worlds and times of Ned the Seal. Share his journeys, as he honks the horn on his power sled, avoids becoming a culinary prize of beasts and cannibals, and settles in for a meal of fish, baked or fried, dried or raw. Cause the Sky Done Ripped and everything has gone to adventurous hell.
And thank goodness. We've added a large over pages compendium of John Crowley's non-fiction to our schedule later this year.
