It is the year 2033. A devastating war has ravaged America. The government has collapsed and John Hemingway and his twenty three year-old daughter, Claire struggle to survive under the tyranny of a brutal regime, the Glory Revolution Alliance. Driven by near starvation and the allure of freedom, they set off across the post-apocalyptic wasteland of fallen America in search of a better life.
With help from their friends, Margaret, a faithful loving friend willing to give up her life to protect them, and Bill a straight shooting, gun-toting, fast talking Texan, they must depend on one another to survive while being hunted for their lives. In the chaos, they get separated and are taken prisoner or are left to fend for themselves.
In this unpredictable, dystopian society, where martial law reigns, they must survive against rapists, thieves and the forces of nature in hopes of reuniting, and restoring their kinship with each other.
Scott Brande goes into an experimental therapy session using lucid dreaming, and gets way more than he bargained for.
In the future, the line between the real world and virtual reality has begun to blur. Dominated by the elites, regular citizens are subject to mandatory psychological examinations the results of which can lead to their imprisonment...or even death. After the first murder in decades, a young woman must try to solve a series of seemingly familiar homicides, and at the same time trying to answer the question: what does it mean to remain sane?
A rather poetic psychological horror.
It's better to go in without any knowledge.
"The watcher of the house searched around for it's objective. Though the signs of life had disappeared, and only an empty hollow remained." - From The Watcher
This is a short story based on a daydream I had , a light bulb moment...
"On that Tuesday mid-afternoon, I remembered looking out the window and watching the snow fall from the top of the clear world, and to the dirty and gritty ground, and I remembered that was the last time I could ever see the beauty in it.
Oh, how I hate acid snowflakes."
While working on homework in a small café in Loveland, CO during her holiday-break, a man comes up to the 15-year-old, Tavi Smith, and starts a conversion.
That was her first mistake.
When he 'accidentally' spills coffee on her, he runs and buys her a new one. Feeling that Tavi had to be polite, she takes the coffee.
That was the second mistake.
Believing that he was a trustable, funny, kind man, she takes a drink of her coffee.
That was her third mistake.
The man drugs her, and takes her away, deep in the Rocky Mountains, with the heavy winter snow covering their tracks. Imprisoned in a cabin, far away from her family and friends, it's just her and a strange man named William. He is arrogant, cocky, unpredictable, dangerous . . . but the only person that she has for miles.
