It has been the mystery for centuries. . . that out of the folk unconscious there should well ideas of continents that are not in the world."" And Lafferty, in these dark tales, lays out some psychically floating continents with nightmare creatures -- a gently metamorphizing spider community; an underground empire of fierce Little People; a dream Africa which produces death and mutilation; a planet of Abundant Life with its artifacts of happy dead generations. And in time travel, ancient and modern man along with divided personalities collide. Fantastic speculations -- for the Jung in heart.
