WHO WAS NATHAN BRAZIL ... AND WHAT WAS HE DOING ON THE WELL WORLD?
Entered by a thousand unsuspected gateways - built by a race lost in the clouds of time - the planet its dwellers called Well World turned beings of every kind into something else.
There a spacefarer Nathan Brazil found himself companioned by a batman, an enormous female centaur and a mermaid - all once as human as he.
Yet Nathan Brazil's metamorphosis was more terrifying than any of those ... and his memory was coming back, bringing with it the secret of the Well World.
For at the heart of the bizarre planet lay the goal of every of every being that had ever lived - and Nathan Brazil and his comrades were ... lucky? ... enough to find it!
WELCOME TO THE WELL WORLD
The giant figure coming toward them was like nothing in the known Universe. An incredibly muscled human torso, topped by a head hairless except for a white walrus mustache, and sporting six arms melded to five-meter snake-like lower half.
It approached Brazil and his companions and signed them to remove their helmets. Reluctantly they did so, and found that the air was breathable.
"Now what?" Hain asked.
"Damned if I know," Brazil said honestly. "How do you say hello to a giant walrus-snake?"
"Well, I'll be god-damned!" the creature exclaimed, "if it isn't Nathan Brazil!"
Nathan Brazil, a cargo ship-for-hire owner, detours from his route to answer a distress call. A hidden stargate hurls him and his passengers to the Well World, the master control planet for the cosmos created by the now-gone godlike race who designed the universe. Now someone wants to find the Well of Souls to seize control of all the cosmos--and it's up to Nathan to stop them.

Nathan Brazil is an unassuming if cynical starship owner, carrying passengers and cargo for a living--hardly the sort of person to hold the fate of the entire universe in his hands. But when Nathan detours from his route to answer a distress call, a hidden stargate hurls him and his passengers to the Well World, the master control planet for the cosmos. Billions of years ago, a godlike race unlocked all the secrets of space and time and remade the universe according to their grand design. Then they vanished and left behind the Well World to maintain the pattern of the universe. Now someone is searching for the planet's hidden control room--the Well of Souls--to seize control of the cosmos. Nathan must stop them, but this planet causes bizarre metamorphoses in visitors, changing them into centaurs, mermaids, and giant insects seemingly at random. As a result, Nathan no longer recognizes his friends, let alone his unknown enemies. His task seems hopeless--until his long-suppressed memories begin to return and he realizes who he really is.… (more)
