Glide has the pen pusher blues until his cloud of depression turns into a magic man who whisks him off to Auslan, a former paradise in need of a hero. But first Glide has to untangle the secret of Slowtime.
A comedic fantasy with a uniquely Australian flavour and a steampunk twist, Glide in Steamtime is a romp where science is magic and magic is science. It's Dreamtime ... in steam time.
