Collaborations of mixed quality, but the title story is a masterpiece of alternative history/steampunkery(written with Steve Utley) Him and Steve also crank a story called I believe "Black as Pitch from Pole to Pole" a pastiche homage of Frankenstein,hollow earth theory, Journey to the center of the Earth, Moby Dick, Narrative of A Gordon Pym, E.R. Burroughs, and "At the Mountains of Madness"(if that list of books doesn't get you smiling I'm sorry)
