Following an inexplicable urge, Ted Barton returns to his idyllic Virginia hometown for a vacation, but when he gets there, he is shocked to discover that the town has utterly changed. The stores and houses are all different and he doesn’t recognize anybody. The mystery deepens when he checks the town’s historical records...and reads that he died nearly twenty years earlier. As he attempts to uncover the secrets of the town, Barton is drawn deeper into the puzzle, and into a supernatural battle that could decide the fate of the universe.

From the Publisher:

'The most brilliant Sci-Fi mind on any planet' - Rolling Stone

From the Back Cover:

The Cosmic Puppets begins like an episode of The Twilight Zone and then ramps up the strangeness and fantasy to epic levels. Because the mystery is about more than one man or one town this is a battle between gods.
