Riassunto: In the city at the center of time, paradox is just another urban renewal project. All time and all possibilities converge in the city of Cinnabar. to experience its magic you must: Seek entrances both near and far... Cross uncountable parsecs and millennia... Look beyond the mirror... Try that odd freeway exit you've never taken... Follow the yellow brick road... Turn left at the north star and go straight on till morning... Or... use this book as your map. Here are some of your traveling companions: Tourmaline Hayes, beautiful Network sex star, the compleat tourist. Obregon, the completely nonspecialized scientist and inventor of a time machine. Leah Sand, melancholy media artist. Jade Blue, the computer-created cat-mother. Cougar Lou Landis, once a pudgy adolescent, now the last hero. Sidhe, the great white shark that voyaged 350 million years. Harry Vincent Blake, a 20th century student who fell down the rabbit hole. Terminex, the ultimate, though only intermittently sane, computer. These and many more will accompany you on a phantasmagorical expedition through a city where the choice of alternatives, be they biological, social, or technological, is infinite. Among the Dead, Bryant's first book, was grim in tone; though at the core there were as many affirmative as negative visions. Still the book's predominant portraits were painted in shades of gray to black. Bryant was exorcising his nightmares. Cinnabar, on the other hand, is written in splashes of brighter-than-life color, supplied from the palette of Bryant's better dreams. It is the author's hope that at some point in the reading of this book, you'll wish you were in Cinnabar rather than where you are now. Because of Ed's financial needs, almost all the profits from this book go directly to Ed. Donations to help with Ed's medical and other financial needs are also most appreciated via www.FriendsOfEd.org. Thank you! Critical Acclaim for Edward Bryant and Among the Dead "Not since Harlan Ellison has there been so energetic an author; when you read Bryant, you are in good hands." ?Theodore Sturgeon, New York Times "These are contemporary horror stories with monsters more frightening than old-fashioned ghosts and vampires." ?Kirkus Reviews. "Compelling and totally unnerving." ?Chicago Tribune "Brilliant, mythopoeic science fiction stories of events leading to the Apocalypse." ?E. Nelson Hayes, Boston Patriot Ledger "...a finely crafted example of justifiable paranoia in black and white; poetic, surrealistic, cynically humorous, and all too believable." ?Jim Anderson, Colorado Daily "Bryant is a major talent." ?Richard Lupoff, Algol. "...his first book is very good indeed. Bryant writes both black humor and weird tales with a flair." ?Olga Curtis, Denver Post "...the work of a very gifted author and the most impressive science-fiction collection by a new writer in many years." ?Kirby McCauley, Minneapolis Sunday Tribune
