Included is all-new material - scenes that didn't fit in the regular issues, exhaustive footnotes, new covers, and chapter-heading portraits. Jaeger Ayers doesn't take to crowds or conformity, and there's an abundance of both in Munkytown. There are also personal connections for him. Meet the Ascians, whose tribal culture is on display to visitors eager to spend and afternoon in Noble Savage Land; and the Nyima, the lion-people in danger of losing their pride the longer they stay in the theme park. Munkytown has the economic upper hand in an uneasy alliance where nothing is what it seems. But power takes many forms, and that's where a Finder comes in handy.

"Talisman" is about a kid and a book; the kind of book you crave when you're too young to pay for it yourself.

It's the kind of book you try to take out of your dreams, and are honestly disappointed when it vanishes despite your best efforts. It's the kind you fall in love with at the bookstore and buy in the certainty that it will imbue you with the abilities of the author or illustrator. "Talisman" is about hunger and magic. Softcover, 104 pages, B&W. Cover price $13.95.
