Matters of Time, an anthology

Time.

It affects our every decision. We set alarms, celebrate milestones, and perform daily routines.

Eighty-eight years and twenty-two birthdays, there’s a riddle. Five bucks to the person who can puzzle through that one.

We can change almost every aspect of our lives, but time. Its swiftly moving current propels us to an unknown end.

People who feel trapped will do just about anything to free themselves.

This multi-genre collection will thrill and entertain you with tales of characters making choices with their given minutes…until they run out of time.

Maybe you remember where you were when the clocks stopped and the nightmare began.

Contains stories with zombies, mermaids, magic, and enchantment.

While living in the old inn of Nemesté, James discovers that he and his parents are not the only ones calling the inn ‘home’. On the third floor lives a mysterious old lady named Rionzi DuCrét. Though Rionzi is feared by the villagers and confined to her rooms, she and James strike up an unlikely friendship and soon discover they have both befriended leafy, mushroom footed creatures in the woods called Fidoris.

James’s parents tell him he is too old to have imaginary friends like the Fidoris. And when 150 year old Rionzi DuCrét tells of her Fidori adventures, the people of Nemesté say she has gone insane. Will James and Rionzi be able to prove the Fidoris are real, even though their secret mission is threatened by suspicious villagers and their own doubts about the existence of the Fidoris begin to grow?

For Mark Whelan, Private Investigator, it all begins in a sombre but entirely unremarkable way: a visit to the morgue to provide moral support to a client as he formally identifies his brother. But Whelan’s interest is piqued by a link between the victim’s death and Whelan’s own youth and by signs that the death is the result of something darker than the “accident” being suggested by the police. The appearance of a mysterious message from the dead man, the discovery that his apartment had been burgled, and an attempt on Whelan’s life prove that something else, something very valuable, is in play. Then the bodies begin to pile up. Balsam Sirens tells the story of a private investigator who takes on a case that appears routine, but who is soon swept to the edge of a psychological abyss by the abduction of his wife. Whelan, a PI colleague, and an unlikely ally – a fearless bush pilot called Kate – drive the action forward to a gun battle and a surprising outcome.
