      A first novel.

    In the red sands of the Martian desert is a little town on the edge of nowhere. Founded by accident, Desolation Road sprang into being, and during its short, 30-year history, it entertained every conceivable cosmic abnormality the Multiverse had to offer. And in this inconsequential place was fought a battle so extraordinary that time itself had to be readjusted.
