(From the publisher):
Here are twelve short stories that effortlessly move across time, place, and culture, from the Gobi Desert to the heights of Mount Everest and the jungles of Java. In "The Antipodes and the Century," a great Scottish engineer, left to die in the middle of the desert, is rescued by a tribe of nomads and inspires them to build an exact replica of the city of Edinburgh in the dunes; "Ever Wrest: Log of the Journey" is the tale of a dying cross-dressing pilot who allegedly climbs Mount Everest and then mysteriously disappears; "Hagiography of the Apostate" tells of a monk who conjures the devil in an effort to prove the devil's existence; and in "A Bestiary," the line between the spectators and the creatures on display becomes alarmingly blurred.
