Severin Unck's father is a famous director of Gothic romances in an alternate 1986 in which talking movies are still a daring innovation due to the patent-hoarding Edison family. Rebelling against her father's films of passion, intrigue, and spirits from beyond, Severin starts making documentaries, traveling through space and investigating the levitator cults of Neptune and the lawless saloons of Mars. For this is not our solar system, but one drawn from classic science fiction in which all the planets are inhabited and we travel through space on beautiful rockets. Severin is a realist in a fantastic universe. But her latest film, which investigates the disappearance of a diving colony on a watery Venus populated by island-sized alien creatures, will be her last. Though her crew limps home to earth and her story is preserved by the colony's last survivor, Severin will never return.

This book is like nothing I've ever read. Several different mysteries wind around each other in a fragmented narrative, set in a universe where humanity colonized the solar system in the early 1900's. Who is Severin's mother? What happened to Severin on Venus? What made three different human colonies on three different planets disappear without explanation? The mysteries all fit together by the end, and it's a weird and wonderful journey to get there.
