Summary
A skeletal hand clutching an iron key lies hidden within a mermaid’s wooden sarcophagus; a hand-drawn map is stolen from beneath the floorboards an old museum; an eccentric sleeping inventor dreams of a passage to the center of the hollow earth, and by dreaming of the passage, brings it into being.... Pursued by kidnappers thinking of riches and murder, Katherine Perkins and her two cousins, junior members of The Guild of St. George, must descend into the depths of the hollow earth in order to return the Sleeper to his ancestral home on the shores of Lake Windermere. But to awaken him might mean the end of his dream, the closing of the Windermere Passage, and the three intrepid explorers marooned in a savage land forgotten by time itself.... Zeuglodon, set in the world envisioned in James Blaylock’s The Digging Leviathan, is a landscape of color, mystery, and adventure, in which reality and fantasy are shifting currents, and nothing is quite what it seems to be. “James P. Blaylock's Zeuglodon is the most fun I've had reading in ages, with an unabashed budding cryptozoologist protagonist, mummified mermaid, underground passages, lost world, and the scariest busybody since Margaret Hamilton put Toto in her bicycle basket. Don't miss it.” - Locus ABOUT THE AUTHOR World Fantasy Award winning author James P. Blaylock, one of the pioneers of the steampunk genre, has written eighteen novels as well as scores of short stories, essays, and articles. His steampunk novel Homunculus won the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award, and his short story “The Ape-box Affair,” published in Unearth magazine, was the first contemporary steampunk story published in the U.S. Recent publications include Knights of the Cornerstone, The Ebb Tide, and The Affair of the Chalk Cliffs
Summary
After an eccentric inventor creates a passage to the center of the hollow earth just by dreaming of it, it is up to Katherine Perkins and her cousins, all part of The Guild of St. George, to dodge murderous kidnappers and bring the dozing man to his home at the center of the hollow earth, all without waking him, which would close the passageway and maroon them forever.
