Apparently, Govannon's race's effortlessly traveling through the gats of time ends when a hiccup occurs that leaves the alien people stranded in a void between dimensions. Govannon may be the last of the Mohegans unless he can patch up the flaw in the timeline. He is also stranded and forced to don a human form.. His human friend Karen, whom he met while Julius Caesar ruled, knows she must save Govannon from either odious fate.
Karen visits Govannon's home planet Relic though he cannot do so for some unknown reason. She enters the Museum, an edifice that contains the history of Govannon's race, in order to create the story of Govannon and his travels. Her theory is that everything will return to normal (whatever that disgustingly is) when Govannon re-finds his alien self once she writes up his memoirs.
As with the first two PRETERNATURAL novels, 3 is a wild science fiction ride that tears into anything and everything that gets in its path. The plot contains multiple story line to include that described above and a Neo-Nazi kidnapping that Margaret Wander Bonanno blends together while acerbically satirizing the universe, ironically including the publishing world being a road kill victim too. Margaret Wander Bonanno takes HG Wells and turns him upside down, in and out, and around. No one does time travel quite as zany and entertainingly as this author does proving that great things obviously comes in threes.
