Waiting for minimum critic reviews


From around the block, across dimensions, and beyond, come nine disturbances in the fabric of reality from the mind of the inimitable Michael Canfield:

Beneath a vast wine cellar, the last descendent of a doomed lineage discovers a gateway - and an ancient, terrible secret.

An obsessed man looks for answers in books he can’t stay away from.

In small, unnamed, seaside town, far away in time and space, yet not so very different from ours, one man has a job to do: an endless, impossible job.

No force in the lower world can oppose the Commander’s Legion. The Commander is god. So what can stop the destruction of yet another city?

A cursed object manifests itself, threatening to drive a frustrated artist mad.

And a mysterious, impenetrable house suddenly appears in an upscale neighborhood, exerting a dark, irresistible influence over a troubled couple.
