Announcement

The US cover of "Delivery to the Lost City", illustrated by Matt Sharack. The cover illustration shows Suzy, an 11 year old human girl, Wilmot, her green troll friend, and the Chief, a ghostly explorer, looking out of the window of a flying rocket-powered caravan as it sails over a tropical ocean. A string of desert islands is visible below them, along with a floating railway line on which an old fashion steam train is visible.

Many moons ago (well, two and a bit years ago, anyway) I wrote a short story all about Wilmot’s very first delivery aboard the Impossible Postal Express. It was included in a special limited edition of The Train to Impossible Places here in the UK and hasn’t been available anywhere else since 2018. But now, as The Impossible Places Adventures draw to a close, I’m releasing it on this website for free.
