Ever wondered what boy scouts are really up to? Where all the dinosaurs went? How Robert Heinlein halted the Mongovian invasion of 1938? Who Genghis Khan's spies in Europe were? And what the heck is wrong with California?
Matthew Rossi, who may share a psychic link with people like Avram Davidson, Jorge Luis Borges, Umberto Eco, Charles Fort and H.P. Lovecraft, endeavours to answer these and other perplexing questions in the 35+ strange short essays collected in _Things That Never Were_. It is fun and clever and disconcertingly insane; and no matter how erudite the subject matter may be, Rossi's tone remains informal and unassuming throughout this guided tour of the ten dimensions of the Sephiroth. If the 10,000 volts you've been passing through your head are no longer enough to get you off, this frantic weaving of fact and fiction may just be the ticket to deliver that extra jolt you've been craving for.
