In the 1950s, eight young men, dreaming of literary immortality, buried a time capsule with their science fiction stories and cultural relics from the time. Now the capsule is being dredged up because a few of those men have in fact become very famous. As a result, the excavation turns into a multimedia event.

Everything goes off without a hitch until a surprise guest makes an appearance -- a writer who was supposed to have died thirty years ago. Still cynical and angry, he is threatening to expose secrets the famous and the obscure have kept from the world all these years. When murder suddenly meterializes to throw the agenda into chaos, one man must separate science fact from fiction -- and unearth a killer with a story of his own to tell.
(cover blurb)

Sharyn McCrumb tells the story of SF geeks with a sharp wit and tongue firmly planted in cheek. Despite her pungent observations, her affection for the genre and her characters shines through with every word. A fun read, and a tricky mystery!
