Before the Universe
A collection of stories.
At the mysterious nexus where space and time cease to be lie worlds of fearful wizardry and dazzling enchantment. Worlds where humans slumber awaiting their savior... or their executioner. Where a race of sea creatures can colonize Earth and transplant its inhabitants to another dimension. Where protean beings transform themselves at will. And two crazy geniuses go back to the beginning, the very beginning. To play God.
