Book Description HTML

A collection of short fictions — a miscellany of the apocryphal and grim — including a couple that reference the author's previously-published brain-in-the-vat stories. Many of the stories are what might be called 'alternate history,' although the author uses the term 'apocryphal tales' — as the fictions combine a base of what is considered to be historical fact with conjectures and speculations. The intent is to blur the line between accepted fact and purely creative fancy in acknowledgement of the distance and complexity of the past which preclude our knowing with the certitude we are taught to approach history.Adam Mac is a pseudonym used by Peter McMillan.
