From the age of ten, Corin Becket has been tormented with a strange affliction: everyday he has a near-death experience. Ten years later, Corin has learned how to manage this problem and go about his daily life with relative ease. However, the appearance of a stranger―a stranger that’s peculiarly familiar―raises questions surrounding Corin’s life and his mother’s death all of those years ago.


Why you should buy this:

  • There’s no love triangle or love subplot. The protagonist is married, and his relationship with the main female character is ambiguous at best.
  • The female lead, Edith, is a cool working-class medium/psychic in a short Victorian dress.
  • There’s some supernatural stuff going down in Corin’s life.
  • Corin’s physical representation of his subconscious is really weird and kinda amusing.
  • It’s set in the 1920s, and I know how you all love the 1920s.
  • It placed 2nd in Marshall University’s Annual SCORES Competition (Creative Writing: Short Story; 2013; wanna see the medal?)
  • It’s only $6.00. It’s cheaper than the circus.
  • It’s a short story, so it won’t take a long time to read.
  • You’d be supporting a broke college student with aspirations of being a published author.

Even if you can’t buy it, please reblog and help spread the word! Thank you for your time!
