About this title

Synopsis:

As a dirigible flies on a decades-long journey, powered by the will of a tiny man with the ability to drive men mad, the hunchback Narbondo and his assistant attempt to bring the dead back to life

From the Publisher:

Few writers dare attempt a historical fantasy in an effort to best Edgar Allan Poe, Jules Verne, and Robert Louis Stevenson at their own game, but back in 1986 - long before the current alternate history craze - James Blaylock not only tried, but succeeded brilliantly. Homunculus was awarded the Philip K. Dick Award.
