Some are very sympathetic. Others are the extreme opposite.Not even time walks safe between these pages.Stories:Arriving at AnswersRickard, a successful businessman, is facing both a cruel decision and missing his flight.His career is at stake, and so is his conscience – but in a remote corner of the building, he stumbles on more answers than he expected.Because airport terminals are vast and full of unknown doors, some of which lead to very peculiar places...Next one in LineFrank, a high-profile gangster, is lost.

His suit is ruined, he is surrounded by whingeing fools, and he’s stuck in a seemingly never-ending queue.Unless he is wrong, he is also quite dead. And maybe about to face judgement.But Frank is a professional survivor. He gets what he wants and deserves. So far, no one has stopped him.And being in Hell changes nothing...Treasures from TomorrowAn unexpected discovery is unravelling the world at breakneck speed. To some, it’s the happiest accident imaginable.

To many others, it is their worst nightmare come alive.While chaos fills the streets of Los Angeles, veteran taxi driver Nick takes shelter in an abandoned inner city café, but a frantic man with a rifle soon breaks into Nick’s refuge and demands answers.Because mankind has stumbled on a strange well of knowledge unforeseen or unpredicted by anyone. It is a revelation that has made Nick question his past life, but also left him unafraid of death.In difference, the gun-wielding stranger in the café fears death more than ever…Charles, pendingCharles Winchester, a Boston attorney with the conscience and temper of a starved alligator, is standing in a dingy bar.This annoys him, as his last memory is staring down a judge in a risky court case.

And unless he gets back to defend his case, he will be in deep trouble.But the bartender serves up a revelation that soon makes Charles question the man’s – and his own – sanity. Because the bar is not a typical downtown joint, and Charles is far more lost than he first suspects.Now he needs to find a way back home, before he ends up as a permanent guest – or worse...Travel, Mon AmourLucie Barker faces an uncomfortable truth: either she’s losing her mind, or she is part of a prank of epic proportions.She used to have money, friends and admirers, and a prestigious job – until she threw it all away for a strange chase, and a life on the road.For over a year, she’s raced from one wondrous location to the next, hoping to catch up with a trickster with unknown motifs who keeps to the shadows.And every time Lucie stops, a flight ticket is delivered to her in a way that defies belief, and makes her question her sanity.Only two things keep her together: the joy of constant travel, and the fact that she’s closing in on the stranger who beckons from around the bend.
