The Phantom Universe is a collection of four overlapping series. Each book represents a single day in the lives of interconnected characters; some are friends or co-workers, others are lovers, but most are family.
Throughout this extended and overlapping series, each book leads into the next and the lives of the characters will crossover and interact creating what the author hopes will be a rich and vibrate universe. A universe where humanity’s future unknowingly relies on early 1900s era, steam-powered, technologies to protect mankind from a wide range of unseen mythological creatures.
Phantoms exist. They have existed since before the dawn of man. Unseen parasitic constructs created for the sole purpose of distorting our perceptions, clouding our minds, influencing our decisions, and compelling mankind to destroy itself.
