The Limbus of the Moon is a feel-good adventure about two young people, in dead end careers, who meet in Chicago in an extraordinary way and get caught up in an eccentric, and possibily delusional, man's search for the most poisonous sea anemone in the world and the medicines it may yield.
That search takes them to a remote fish camp in the Florida Keys, an exotic island in the Straits of Florida, and the mountaintop home of a fabulously wealthy Chinese shipping magnate in Vancouver, British Columbia. Then, on the sailboat of an adventurer obsessed with coral reefs, they search the remote islands and reefs of the Western Caribbean, where they come upon the most isolated and forbidding little prison ever built.
Along the way, they encounter some very personable Triad members and a few very unpersonable pirates, and they learn that what they are searching for is someplace it cannot possibly be.
This is a privately published, hardback, Smyth-sewn, 368 page, novel, not a paperback.
Two stores in Naperville Illinois carry the book at this time. They are RESTYLE at 1266 E. Chicago Avenue (in the Butera Mall) and Oswald's Pharmacy at 88 West Gartner Rd. If you can't visit either of those, it's extremely easy to buy the book right on this site.

This is a multi-layered story about the complex relationships that determine what constitutes a family. It's a story about regaining time and dreams that seem lost forever, and how far the limbus, or boundary, of the moon may extend for those who seek to regain them.
