Sinopse

Voyage to the 1950s: A Sci-Fi novelette (21,419 words, 10 Chapters) An UNUSUAL UFO time travel story as Brad finally gets to meet his obsession, Amanda, and that's not easy since he's in the 21st century and she's in the 20th century.

It's an offer that Brad just can't refuse. Excerpt: These beings I pondered, had powers far beyond ours. They could move objects around. They could move around in time. They could make people forget events. They could alter documents. I had no doubt that they could place thoughts in people’s minds if they so desired. Could they even bring Amanda forward and change events to make her fit in unnoticed? That was extreme but the thought crossed my mind. What power they had if they chose to use it. They are around us I acknowledged to myself and we didn’t know it. Those who suspected such were dismissed as dreamers or idiots. I recalled that writers had even written novels contemplating their existence in ancient times. Ghost Informant: A Sci-Fi novelette (12965 words 10 Chapters) Description: In this UNUSUAL story, a policeman discovers a strange informant and sets out to solve a murder that hasn't even been reported. The paranormal world and a by-the-book policeman come together as a recently murdered girl's apparition reaches out to him in a plea to find her body. "Find me," she whispered out of thin air from the back seat of his car--but she wasn't really there when he turned around. Excerpt: I knew I had seen and heard the image of a young woman in the back of my cruiser. But why me? Why did she appear to me and who was she? I knew I couldn’t let it rest. After I got to sleep I had a restless night, tossing and turning. Finally I fell into a peaceful deep sleep until I started dreaming. …………..My gaze moved toward the front of the class where the teacher dressed in a red dress and gold belt had her back turned and was writing something on a blackboard. It looked like gibberish. She finished writing several senses of gibberish, turned around slowly to face the class and I saw it was the girl who had appeared in the back of my car……..As soon as her gaze caught mine she crossed her arms and immediately I could see the piece oMaybe it ran in the family.

I heard the sound as the drops hit the floor—almost like the sound of a ticking clock. Then I woke up. I couldn’t get over the feeling I had in my dream that I had somewhere to go, but I didn’t know where. There are some tasks that you know you have to start even though they hadn’t been in your scheme of things and even though you may not even know exactly what they are.
