Several ings at Once by Wm John Diehl is a gripping fantasy about a couple in the not too distant future who are struggling to live a normal life but there is the “game” and the “dream.” Once you have been in the game even the clear blue sky of the real world does not look real. The adventures of the game and the pleasures of the dream are a constant lure. The struggles that they go through in the real world are paralleled in the game. In both there are rules to follow, corners that may or may not be cut, and needs that must be fulfilled. But the rules in the game can be changed making it more appealing at times. Get involved with them in their two worlds. Like them, you may not always know in which world they are but you will always pull for their success. See that only the love they have for one another will carry them through.
