Tales of a Lombard Alchemist, Volume 1

Tales of a Lombard Alchemist, Volume 1

Sometimes they buy. Sometimes they sell. And sometimes... they stay.

High in the desert, between the mountains out west, up where the ground throbs from the nuclear test detonations, the casinos still glitter, drawing people from the far reaches of the world. They come here to try their luck, to take a chance, to have the adventures they wouldn't write home about. In this other-world, the desert offers one last hope for the penniless, the luckless, the loveless, and the hopeless. A pawnshop dealing in wonders, where everything is for sale: a chance to get off the street, a few extra days with a dying lover, an afternoon in the sun, a home to call your own, the perfect wedding, or the chance to become a master magician, or a giraffe for your Sunday morning. But beware of the Master, and price he demands.
