An awesome barrage of exploding rainbow meteors stuns and amazes America?s Heartland one bright spring day. Though the unprecedented meteor shower is intense and terrifying to behold, it'soon becomes apparent that none of the chunks of disintegrating cosmic ice are making it through the atmosphere to reach the ground. The benevolence of the event allows life to go more or less back to normal in the days that follow, with one significant exception. For in one otherwise unremarkable spot something has arrived. In the wake of the cosmic fireworks display certain very unique individuals are inexplicably drawn to that little spot, the backyard of struggling single mom Lydia and her son Tor. Free spirited young Chalice Rayne is drawn there, distracted momentarily from her self-appointed task of ridding the world of evil porcelain garden gnomes, by oddly compelling dreams of giant dancing mushrooms. An evil, prank-loving witch named Cinna is attracted as well, seeking a safe haven in which to attempt to regain control of her own I'mense power before it is too late. Only Tor notices the'strange mushrooms at first. Soon, though, the bizarre and impossible things are subtly influencing everyone?and everything?around them. What are they? Why are they here? What do they want? The answers will truly surprise you. Caution! Mushroom Summer contains all of the following, and odder things as well: strange worlds, flying demon hordes, gigantic holes in the ocean, witches, ancient secrets, I'mortals, ?moonbug theory?, alcohol, sex, drugs and rock ?n? roll. This is where H.G. Wells meets Dr. Timothy Leary. Come on in.
