Twisted Tails II - Time On Our Hands, Volume I
Twisted Tails II - Out of Time, Volume II
Edited by J. Richard Jacobs
These two exciting books explore the concept of time, according to
each writer's imagination. Does time exist as a separate dimension
with a unique place and definite limits in space? How, exactly does
Volume I contains ten stories, each by a different
author, which share their ideas of time travel and dimensions that
are kinked and allow you to pass from one to the other at will.
In Volume I, the surprising abilities of a small autistic child
named Anabelle allow her to communicate with a mummy in the museum,
and frightening things happen in Marilyn Peake's "Mummy In The Art
Museum". Time Travel has never been imagined like this as Blunnet
and Funnit take on a trip with Blondie, their flatface slave in
"Neanderthal Nemesis," by Darrell Bain. In "A Ringkle in Time,"
by Biff Mitchell and Ann Dulhanty, a cure for tinnitus is just a
time warp away.
In Volume II, you will meet a whole new cast of
characters and new twists on the concept of what time is and what
it isn't through eleven delicious sojourns into the unknown. You
can read straight through or browse for your favorite author. Marilyn
Peake has some off-beat ideas in "Moonbeams Upon Stonehenge," and
Anderson Gentry has a different conception of time in "Ten Minutes".
Jeremy Davies manages to lose his protagonist in the landscape in
Each of these stories has a surprise twist ending,
designed to catch you off guard, and they really do just that. But
be careful...the publisher states that you are on your own...no
promise that once you are into a story, you will ever come out.
Some stories will give you a laugh, and others will really creep
you out and may send you on a time-warp tail-spin of your own.
