An alternate future? An insecure past? Another present made of dense woodlands and waterways ... or of streets and buildings and crowds? Are its populations living beside one another in a welter of frequencies or wavelengths not generally experienced in Place and Time?

A particular place called Five Points Akropolis -- This is what Anno Domine 1769, 1900 A.D., and 2017 CE have in common. But what influence does the dwarf-wanderer Pluto have on its fortunes?

One of many characters, Willie the grave-digger would like to know, and too Gregoff the Grak. So would True People's scouts Red Fox and Quick Claws. Jayrai, HBBBAH, and Tu are wondering--they want to be back in 2017, their own time. And little Quadri, whose working thumbs are the pulse of the gamescape. But "the girl," who seems somehow responsible for all this, isn't saying. Three gangs of kids living on the same spot in different times, meeting up for the first time as Pluto descends.


The cycle is five books, in two parts. In chronological order:

1. Return to God's House.
2. Within Without (a.k.a. Within Without God's House).
3. In Winter (a.k.a. God's House in Winter).

5. Balder's Wilderness.
