In the comic tradition of Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, and Jasper Fforde comes Brit Ray's witty screwball fantasy Revamped! Somewhere in the Abstraction Realm spins Planet Heart, where Supernaturals inhabit a parallel version of New York City. In the city of New Broom, amidst hostile Vampires and Rogue Shades from the Abstraction Realm, Veronique, the newly humanized Revamp, forms an unlikely alliance with Quantum Witch Aphra-Bane McCleary. Join them as, with the help of Wisdams and Physards, they take on the problems of the multiverse--and the multiprose.
In the cosmic, calamitous, comic tradition of Terry Pratchett's Discworld comes Brit Ray's Revamped!-- the first in the screwball fantasy series Planet Heart. Somewhere in the Abstraction Realm spins Planet Heart. In New Broom, a city much like New York, exist Wisdams, Physards, Elves, Walking Skeletons, Trolls, Wombie Zombies, Chimeras, sentient animals and furniture, and a fair share of Only-Humans. It's a delightful world, Planet Heart, untouched by Father Time and pampered by Mother Nature, smiled upon by the Sun God Orb and Moon Goddess Celeste, protected by the COGNOSPHERE, and powered by magic. But innocence can last for only so long. Now Rogue Shades, like Shadows of Darkness, are breaking through a Rift in the COGNOSPHERE, threatening city hall, Brook-no-evil University, and the entire city of New Broom. Never underestimate the power of an Abstraction. And then there are the Vampires. Some bad. Some good. And one different. Veronique the Revamp! As a result of a scientific experiment the valiant Veronique can once again eat food and go out in the daylight. Only now she is a pariah in both worlds, attacked by Vampires and loathed by Only-Humans. Worst of all, her paramour Valentine has disappeared from the planet. Can her new friend Quantum Witch Aphra-Bane McCleary save the day? And the whole week of Valentide? What was it that poet said about the best laid plans of mice and Vampires?
About the author
Brit Ray, a native New Yorker, currently divides her time between Swarthmore, PA and Planet Heart, conveniently located in a dimension not far from our own. When here on Earth she makes pictures of the denizens of New Broom, a city much like the one she grew up in. A recent exhibition of her paintings was called "My Cognosphere," after Planet Heart's stratum of living thought. She says it is the infinitely vast and complex networks of abstractions stored in our individual cognospheres that make each of us unique.
