Profile Picture

Jeff's Smith's Bone is an introduction book, a start with no finish. It sets up the situation and sends the reader into an unpredictable fantasy world, with characters both classic and ridiculous. Driven from their home, three bone creatures related by blood are lost in the desert and pushed off a cliff by a swarm of angry locusts and into a valley of mystery, danger, and even love.
