I - "Boy"
A young boy with special abilities to see a world beyond the veil, a realm teeming with shadow formed beasts, undergoes an emotional roller-coaster ride in this coming-of-age short-story tale. Will Tommy forever remain haunted by these demons from beyond, or will he somehow find a way to best them?
II - "Loaded"
The disparate lives of a preteen boy, a mafia kingpin, and a crooked bar owner intersect in this thrilling drama. The story is perceived from the vantage point of an aerial being who simply observes as the lives of mortals unfold. Though rendered homeless, do Marco and his mother find redemption? What tether’s the misunderstood Roger to those slums, and will he find what he seeks?
“Do humans truly get what love is, amidst the rage, war and greed...or is life simply chaos?”
III - "Creased and Folded"
In this short-story fiction, you’re entreated to the life of a one dollar bill, Todd. Todd falls for a higher denomination, a bill that’s as sassy as him. However, in a world more uncertain than ours, with his movements constrained by his human carrier, will Todd ever escape his form of slavery, let alone sail off with his new love?
IV - "Rife"
Nine-tenths of the world’s population is dead. A biological scourge, a dark blight swimming through human veins was to blame. Adam is thrust into a world of loss, and would no sooner set out in search of a woman, for whom he is willing to travel across the broken globe to see again, if only to serve as her piece of comfort for a loss that they both share. The lives of two parties from extremely different socioeconomic backgrounds clash as the apocalyptic world seems rather unsuited for Adam.... Will he ever find the figure of happiness that he desperately seeks?
V - "Three Bleeding Hearts"
Three lives are indefinitely altered on a little girl’s birthday. Two decades later, this small-town girl ventures off to the big city to seek higher education and better opportunities. Becky navigates successfully through life in the big city of Brockville but is soon caught off guard by the baggage that comes with her job. Her family history, and the reason why her father had no pictures of her as a baby, would abruptly and painfully catch up to her. In this short-story drama, is anyone who they say that they are? What does it mean to lose a child?
VI - "Kill Konfirmed"
In a world where an exclusive cadre of pilots, the Relevant, is contracted by various interests to war over the world’s resources, can Jackson Airstrutt maintain sanity? For several years, needing to fend for himself in order to survive, will the orphaned lad now manage to hold on to the rarest treasure in his life, his one friend? Or maybe the fame that comes with piloting a state of the art android eventually gets to him?
VII - "The Weird Boy on Third Street"
In this dark, paranormal short story, a coming-of-age tale, Scott and his family move into their new home in the middle of summer. On the surface, they were settling into your typical quaint lower-middle-class suburban neighborhood. We follow Scott’s exploration of the place as he battles to make friends, gains acquaintances and as he goes on to discover that his new home harbors a dark secret. Can one tell the difference between imagination and actually talking to a nonhuman entity?
