The Tidal Wave

As Robert Frost had said, “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both.” A single decision, even the simplest, can diverge an entire universe...

Escape Hatch

A doctor at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, or a conspiracy theorist madman suffering from the Mandela Effect?

Cleaning for a Party

Think you’ve got problems with a dirty fridge? You haven’t seen nothing yet!

Belt Buckle

A mudlark scavenging in the Thames discovers a treasure beyond measure!


A turning point in Man’s history, or the end of our world as we know it?


A doorway to parallel worlds? Well.... maybe.

The Veil

A harsh look at what possible futures we may all potentially face.

The Lighthouse

An uplifting and lighthearted yarn for those gardeners at heart.


A free-falling doomed astronaut might just have an impossible rescue.


In an alternate future, the Y2K bug became a reality, with some unanticipated consequences.

Mirror Glass

Are our mirror reflections just that, a carefully choreographed replica, or a slip into madness?

Moving to Another Universe

Universes and worlds collapse and die, but is this a natural phenomena, and is it stoppable?

Inter-Planetary Seeding

The birth of a new world and hope, but at what cost?

Eye of the Beholder

Seeing people for what they truly are: a blessing or a curse? But what do you see in the eye of a monster?

Finders Keepers

Do we manifest in parallel universes? And if so, how, and as what?

This Quiet Earth

In the aftermath of a destroyed world, following hot on the tail of The Refuse Chronicles’ brutal finale, Tamara’s story continues, linking Ngaro’s Sojourney and the Fractures-Series sequel, Invasion: Scion.
