Following the economic and natural upheavals of the twenty-first century, the great cataclysm known as Helter-Skelter caused civilization to disintegrate. There are no great nations, no highly organized governments, no telecommunications, no electricity, no internal combustion engines.

But you can still get tickets on a Saturday night, and Honkweed is cheap and plentiful. Or it was, until recently.The wondrous medicinal herb, Honkweed, grown in the mountain community of Hillcommune, is the most important crop in Street-Corner Earth. Lately, brigands have been raiding supply caravans, causing severe shortages. It is suspected that the region’s traditional enemies, the Fascists of the Great Whitelands and the Greasers of Khamshaft, are behind the attacks.Josiah Toad, pipe maker and aspiring historian, has never strayed far from Smuttynose, his island home.

As the Honkweed supply dries up, his business falters and his dreams become haunted by a maniacal dark horseman. Then, late one night, Ernie Mungweasle, a close friend and traveling herbalist, unexpectedly appears at his door with incredible tales of the world beyond the island. Before Ernie is finished, Toad is persuaded to accompany his friend to the trading center of Covenstead Fair. Little does Toad know that this seemingly innocent trip will soon put him in the middle of the struggle between the people of Street-Corner Earth and a Fascist-Greaser alliance, and involve him with a secret society of scholars, deadly cults, cannibals and two immortals, an ancient beatnik and a faceless Dark Man with a thousand names.Yet this is only the beginning of Toad’s journey, as little by little, he uncovers the truth behind the world he lives in, its history and his place in it.

Is everything he’s ever known real, or is it just an elaborate pipedream?
