The mind-expanding novel that seeded The Strange RPG, for all fans of inventive science fiction and fantasy.

Carter Morrison didn’t want to kill his friends, or himself, but he had a good reason. It was either them, or the end of all life on the planet: their sacrifice saved the world.

Not that anyone knew it, until Katherine Manners stumbled over a melting man in a computer room clutching a message of doom from another world.

Goodreads URL Discuss and Review Myth of the Maker

“I had a lot of fun reading this book. There were so many strange and interesting things going on that I kept turning the pages wanting to know more. And there were a couple of twists in the story line that had my toes bouncing because I was giddy with excitement. No surprises were completely out of left field and the story, world and characters are strong throughout the book.”
Purple Owl Reviews

“An entertaining read.”
Strange Alliances

“Intense, complex, realistic, and intelligent, this is a book that manages to entertain and draw you in.”
