Three creatures, one man, who find themselves in hellish Hieronymus Bosch landscapes that thrive on anti-matter, anti-space, anti-time.  A strange and curious novel, laced with superb similes, mind-blowing metaphors, a cascading prose that echoes and re-echoes long after you put it down. (from the jacket blurb) 

First printing, Signed and inscribed by author on title page.
