After half a decade in Japan, Garett Wilson thought that nothing could shock him anymore...until he started a new job and a new life at a high school in downtown Tokyo. Here he discovered the real Japan, not the version sold to tourists, and realized that it was far more thrilling, heartbreaking, and beautiful than anything he had ever experienced. Over the course of one year in Tokyo, Garett navigates the perilous waters of 21st-century Japan, where love and laughter are as common as violence and tragedy.

One of the strangest adventurers in the history of science fiction. It is millennia from now and mankind has vanished from the Earth, under mysterious circumstances.... But he has left a legacy behind him: a host of intelligent species artificially enhanced by means of humanity's genetic science. Aldair is one such product, an intelligent, upright pig.
For his world and ours are the same...but his lies in the future and seems destined to parallel the history of our own. Where is humanity? What legacy has true mankind left to its manlike descendants that they must relive our past? For Aldair has been forced into the role of a future Magellan, who must travel down the coasts of unmapped continents, facing monsters, winged wizards and great dangers, to find a knowledge older than the history of his entire race.
I have done more than my share of wandering. In a few short years, I have been slave, scholar, and master of ships. I have played no small part in the death of two great empires. I have nearly been eaten whole by the shapeless thing that guards the Great River. I have even soared above the earth like a large, ungainly bird. Finally, I have come to know the handiwork of man, in the sad and fearful land of Merrkia, across the Misty Sea.
When we last left our adventurers, the massive ball of death was massively balling toward the certain death of all Bersch’s inhabitants. The secret to stopping the destruction and saving the world - if it should, indeed, be saved - is hidden away deep in the desert sands. Joining their crew is the slightly crazy, time/space traveling professor who also happens to be Xharon’s daddy. And who also happens to really want her to wear more than just her knickers, much to Bip’s dismay.
On the day that Aldair found that his world had abruptly turned upside-down, his history-changing quest began. And he did not even then know that it was to be a quest. Aldair had been a true acolyte of the faith when it happened. And then, he found himself an accursed outcast, the one against whom all hands were raised. His only friends were those who had been his most vicious enemies. His only course led to the lands of horror. And his final goal had to be that most forbidden of all lands, the dwelling place of the dead, that island of total terror known as Albion.
