The Celestial Steam Locomotive (Volume I of The Song of Earth)
My story takes place during the year 143,624 Cyclic, and it is about three humans of varying species who
became known as the Triad. There are other stories, too. These stories relate to events that took place at different times during Earths history, but they are all essential to the central theme of the Triad, and of Humanity."
In a future so distant that man has evolved into five distinct species on an Earth that is but one of many possible Earths, Michael Coney takes up myth, magic, alien worlds, wondrous beings, dreams, and high technology to weave a rich tapestry of epic proportions. The Celestial Steam Locomotive, the first volume of The Song of Earth, begins an extensive future history of Earth and mans home galaxy as told by Alan-Blue-Cloud, a pure intelligence, ineffable and immortal, who remembers not only what was but what will be.
