John Dee's Black Leg: A Metaphysical Farce/ By Julian Keith; Art by Rebecca J. Becker.

Keith, Julian, (author.). Becker, Rebecca J., (Artist.).


Researcher Norman Pomeroy walks in the park every day at the same time, like clockwork. But one day a dead body turns up in the bushes - along with something else. Suddenly, a bizarre collection of self-styled mystics descends on Norman's neighborhood. The strangers all lay claim to wisdom far older than the digital age, and all are urgently seeking the mysterious object that Norman found near the body in the park. With their secret societies and passwords, rituals and practices, they seem like curious relics left over from a bygone era. Are they all mad, or....Is the modern age forgetting something?
