“Bandits and Bone-hunters collide in this palaeontological spaghetti western!”

FECCLES

SUMMARY

Iridium is a one-act spaghetti-western that brings the bitter, bloody-minded world of 19th century American palaeontology to violent, Machiavellian life. The year is 1898; Professor Edward Drinker Cope of Philadelphia is in his final months of life. His death will mean the end of the “Bone War”, the rivalry between him and Yale palaeontologist Professor Othniel Charles Marsh, which over the past three decades has left a wake of stolen fossils and exploded dig sites – but also led to the discovery of countless new species. Iridium tells the story of Cope’s (fictitious) final strike at victory, one which will bring bone-hunters, cowboys and bandits to each other’s throats. Worse, it will draw from obscurity the youthful the youthful gunslinger-turned-palaeontologist Marcus Kittridge and the enigmatic palaeontologist-turned-gunslinger Elizabeth Bowskull, and the scores they have to settle.
