Ellen Million In a world where time itself has been torn, family is more important than ever.
Explore concepts of kinship - by blood and by choice - in a setting that spans lush rainforests, monster-infested seas, wild valleys, and frozen mountains. Journey between the strictly licensed, steam-powered cities of the southern Empire and the small communal villages in the north that believe they are alone in the world. Meet the varied people and cultures who define family in so many different ways. Glimpse mysteries unique to the temporal structure of Torn World and search for answers to universal questions about belonging and relating.
Torn World writers, artists and poets brings fresh new visions of family and coming of age to the page.
Blurring the lines between science fiction and fantasy and bending the rules of time itself, Torn World invites you to tear into a new kind of shared world.
This collection of stories and poetry includes work by a dozen creators. This volume is a great jumping-in point for the world itself, with information blurbs throughout to give just a hint of the world-building detail that has been developed. 32 stories and 5 poems are included.
