          Description

          "Tim McLaughlin's stunning 'Notes Toward Absolute Zero' interweaves historical documents of the ill-fated Franklin expedition with the personal reminiscences of a woman in search of her hypnotist uncle and of the the man who, in turn, searches for her. Follow Jericho, Magel, and Winter as their lives intersect and diverge across an eerie landscape dotted with relics, forgotten lists, train wrecks, scraps from journals, ghost ships, poetry, postage stamps, Mesmer's propositions, and -- of course -- The Six Failures of Love."--Eastgate Systems, Inc.
