AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Great potential in that boy, real great, a Ne'verman predicted when Glide was born. So how did he end up working a dull office job, his potential squandered and his true dreams unrealised? Glide's got the pen pusher blues. Then he accidentally summons a magic man, Ne'wang, who whisks him through a gateway to Auslan, a former paradise in desperate need of a hero. If Glide wants to fill some big hero boots, he's got to face a wicked Witch, rescue a beautiful princess trapped in Slowtime, and deal with a Giant Dwarf. Good thing he's got a roo-riding imp and a talking elephant on his side. Life can be hard for a hero and Glide is in a right pickle. How can he hope to defeat the Witch? What is the secret of Slowtime? Will Ne'wang ever stop toppling backwards out of Auslan? Will Strongarm ever stop insisting he's not an elephant even though he looks an awful lot like one? And just how much planning can you do down the pub, anyway? A comedic fantasy with a uniquely Australian flavour and a steampunk twist, Glide in Slowtime will take you on a romp where science is magic and magic is science. It's Dreamtime ... in steam time.'
