80 years before The Tower of Babel, a young boy found he had second sight. But grownups don’t believe children who see visions…
Now Uncle Phil is an old man. But as he begins dictating his story to his nephew James, the madness of those times comes back.
“The worst thing you can do, little fella, is fear what you create. I’ve known this from earliest memory; and even before I knew whether the visions were creation or reality, I never cowered before them, but embraced them.
“My name is Phillip Feckidee. I am now that which the weakness of this earth would call an old man; and though my hair may be white and my eyes hidden in wrinkles, my capacities are undiminished, you hear?
