Турист из России, бездельничающий в Германии в две тысячи шестнадцатом году, неизвестно каким образом оказывается вдруг в четырнадцатом веке в теле юного барона. Правда, барон ранен и его собираются добить, а замок разграбить и сжечь, но главное – он все-таки жив. Но обошлось, выкрутился. Так и пошло: жизнь подбрасывает постоянно зубодробительные подарки, а он выкручивается, и не без прибыли для себя. За четыре года пребывания в средневековой Германии добился довольно многого, хотя особенно к этому и не стремился. Иногда приходилось поступать жестко и даже жестоко, но ничего не поделаешь – время такое. Иначе просто не выжить. А что впереди? Впереди еще множество вызовов, и на все надо достойно ответить.

Wilson has blended H.P. Lovecraft's dark vision with his own revolutionary philosophy and unique narrative powers to produce a stunning, high-tension story of vaulting imagination. A professor makes a horrifying discovery while excavating a sinister archaeological site. For over 200 years, mind parasites have been lurking in the deepest layers of human consciousness, feeding on human life force and steadily gaining a foothold on the planet. Now they threaten humanity's extinction. They can be fought with one weapon only: the mind, pushed to–and beyond–its limits. Pushed so far that humans can read each other's thoughts, that the moon can be shifted from its orbit by thought alone. Pushed so that man can at last join battle with the loathsome parasites on equal terms.

When an art scene takes root in a pop-up colony called Freedom Springs, micro-visionary Ben Wilfork promotes the giant, autobiographical 600 square foot canvases of former chess prodigy and high end dominatrix Rhonda Barrett using his Hidden Wheel as a bridge to the future before pre-Datastrophe history completes itself. It's a book about the scams of the modern age–artistic self-promotion, corporate infiltration of hipsterdom–and it's hilarious. At the same time this is a philosophical literary work that dissects hipsterdom to get at the core of what it's all about. A must-read for art fans, punk fans, anyone who wants to know how the truly original ideas can get subsumed by the corporate machine–and how to save them. Told in an intriguing intersecting point of view style this is a powerful short novel by an emerging talent.
