Product Description: The Gods and Goddesses, the Demons and Monsters, of ancient mythologies have been trivialized, their worship proscribed and the entities themselves confined to another realm. Their ongoing battles are chronicled throughout Jim McPherson's PHANTACEA Mythos. In "The War of the Apocalyptics", the first book in the LAUNCH 1980 story cycle, a number of these acknowledged devils break out of the Sedon Sphere, the dimensional barrier between the Inner and the Outer Earth. Among them are the Apocalyptics: War, Death, Disease and Destruction. Death is pregnant. The 17-year Secret War of Supranormals ended in December 1955. At the end of November 1980, 1955's Last of the Supranormals re-emerge whole, bodies with minds, from nearly a quarter century in Limbo. Since they do so on Damnation Isle, in the Aleutian Chain of islands, they consequently decide to call themselves the Damnation Brigade. They may be all that can stand against the Apocalyptics and their allies. Although evidently mortal and mostly human, they may also be the sons and daughters of the Gods and Goddesses, the Demons and Monsters, of ancient mythologies.
