You do not know me yet, my love, but I can hear you in my future. You are there from the beginning–at first just a few stray notes, but your presence quickly grows into a beautiful refrain. I wish you could hear time as I do, my love, but this song was never meant to be heard. The future should be chronobviated, gathered up in feathery pink fronds with delicate threads that waver in and out of alternate timelines. The past should be mimeographed, absorbed into a sturdy gray tail that stretches back to the beginning of the universe. We humans have neither fronds nor tails, but when the Eternals wanted to talk to us, they found a way to work around that.

The stories didn't rock my world, but I'm glad I heard them.
The cover art fits well, and after listening, that "crown" also reminds me of fencing around a concentration camp -- again fitting the 2nd story.

This was some good stuff. Not exactly my cup of tea, but I appreciate the quality.

A Crown of Woven Nails was a nice story, but Harmonies of Time made me weep. Nice finds!
