Description:

HOOTERS, HATTERS, AND MENACING EVIL

Even in a world where centuries ago animals were magically changed into semi-human form, the land of Makasar holds secrets and customs stranger still. Two bizarre religions hold sway in Makasar: During the day, the Hatters wander about poking strangers with sticks. The night is ruled by Hooters, who dearly love to set their neighbors on fire.

When Finn, Master Lizard Maker, finds himself stranded here with his lover, an attractive Newlie Mycer named Letitia, and his most magical creation, a talking, thinking, cantankerous mechanical lizard named Julia Jessica Slagg---his very first thought is: "Letís get out of this place, and fast!"

But the Nuccis, three generations of madmen, have other plans for Finn and his loyal companions. Thereís a very ancient, very odd machine in the cellar that needs fixing. And who better to do it than a Master Lizard Maker? Finnís first thought was right on the money: "Get out now!"

So why doesnít good sense come along exactly when we need it?
