…or did it?
While some cynics claim our beloved Texas theme park never truly existed, 18 of today’s greatest weird-fiction authors remain convinced it did — and we’ve written all-new original stories to prove it!
Join us as we journey back to the Seven Realms:
- The Realm of Life — a primeval jungle zoo and aquarium
- The Realm of the Cell— an encounter with protozoan predators
- The Realm of the Deep — a voyage aboard a wondrous submarine
- The Realm of the Stars — a space station exploring the cosmos
- The Realm of Man — a face-to-face encounter with humankind’s ancestors
- The Realm of the Particle — a reality-warping adventure at the quantum scale
- The Realm of Time — a Victorian mansion housing a time machine
Each story in this anthology reimagines OmniPark folklore in unique, startling ways.In these stories you’ll meet sentient sea creatures, time-traveling siblings, creeping cosmic horrors, mad inventors — and a full cast of equally memorable characters.
You’ll travel to alternate universes, distant solar systems, ocean trenches, paradoxical dimensions, and dozens more realms of the fantastic.
Along the way, you’ll discover for yourself why OmniPark remains vibrant in our thoughts and memories — and alive and well in our hearts.
