Tumbletown by MikeDoscher Tumbletown by MikeDoscher
Here, on the edge of night, the grey sea turns black.

Here, on the edge of winter, the leaves spin through their last fanfare.

It is a city built upon ruin and happenstance, and the destination of all travelers who have neglected to choose another path. Through cracked glass and driftwood there are snatches of song and the smell of cooking food. Merchants line the Ghost Bazaar and offer the impossible to the misbegotten. Behind locked doors heaven and hell discuss terms and the usual private games are played.

Given enough time, even the Iron Road leads somewhere, to some end.

the description sounds like an opening to the Twilight Zone. Great work, very imaginative.

Nice to see a scene so detailed in traditional ways instead of digitally.

The old hover truck is what really sells this piece. Excellent description too.

Ha ha, awesome, sounds like an interesting place to visit!! :D That's a flying car docked to the house there, right?  Sure doesn't look like it has wheels, or, indeed, anywhere to attach them.
