“Hello, my name is Thomas Thwaites, and I have made a toaster.” So begins The Toaster Project, the author’s nine-month-long journey from his local appliance store to remote mines in the UK to his mother’s backyard, where he creates a crude foundry. Along the way, he learns that an ordinary toaster is made up of 404 separate parts, that the best way to smelt metal at home is by using a method found in a fifteenth-century treatise, and that plastic is almost impossible to make from scratch. In the end, Thwaites’s homemade toaster—a haunting and strangely beautiful object—cost 250 times more than the toaster he bought at the store and involved close to two thousand miles of travel to some of Britain’s remotest locations. The Toaster Project may seem foolish, even insane. Yet, Thwaites’s quixotic tale, told with self-deprecating wit, helps us reflect on the costs and perils of our cheap consumer culture, and in so doing reveals much about the organization of the modern world.
Perhaps it wasn’t from our time; perhaps it wasn’t even from our universe. But the arrival of the three-hundred-kilometer-long stone was the answer to humanity’s desperate need to end the threat of nuclear war. Inside the deep recesses of the stone lies Thistledown—the remnants of a human society versed in English, Russian, and Chinese. Their artifacts foretell a great Death caused by the ravages of war, but the government and scientists are unable to decide how to use this knowledge. Deeper still within the stone is the Way. For some, the Way means salvation from death; for others, it is a parallel world where loved ones live again. But, unlike Thistledown, the Way is not entirely dead, and its inhabitants hold the knowledge of a present war, over a million miles away, involving weapons far more deadly than any that mankind has ever conceived.
