The Shipwrecks of Time - Excerpt

I'm early by a couple of days.  

There'll probably be two more after this one.  I think.  I can't put the whole thing up here, guys, and I'm skipping some of the kool stuff regarding Ogier the Dane, Gregory of Tour's History of the Franks, and the Res gestae arturi britanni.  Not to mention what Frank will find early next year at the Generallandesarchiv Karlsruhe. 
     Frank wore a blue blazer over dark slacks and, as a concession against the snow, big rubber galoshes with metal clasps.  He shed these and the overcoat, muffler, and fur-lined cap at the coat-check and followed Nelson into the Stone Toad.  As instructed, he rubbed the Toad on the head before circling the fountain into the night club.
     “Let’s see what’s on display tonight,” Nelson called into his ear.  
See what's on display here



  1. Sometimes the little previews just make the waiting worse. I'll send a wad of cash in an envelope to a shady address in Lagos, Nigeria of your choosing if you just post the whole thing.

  2. Thanks for sharing these, I'm really looking forward to the book now.


Whoa, What's This?
