Three Milan editors become enthralled in the development of a literary joke that becomes very real. They feed all sorts of knowledge into their computer…manuscript pages on hermetic thought…Brazilian voodoo, the secrets of the solar system, rites of the Knights of the Temple, Rosicrucians. Their fun little game begins to take over, putting ing its creators into deadly peril. An incredible journey of thought and history, memory and fantasy. Translated by William Weaver.
