Abstract: What happens when the earth slips on its axis? What if the wrong turn took you out of this world and into another? Take a look through the cracks in reality...What if you woke up in the morning to find the world utterly transformed? What if a wrong turn took you to a strange, unknown place?What if the barrier between the real and the impossible proved to be much more fragile than anybody could possibly have imagined?From Alan Bilton, author of The Known and Unknown Sea and The Sleepwalkers’ Ball comes a collection of strange and unsettling short stories, poised midway between horror and comedy, the deeply mysterious and the utterly absurd.Drop through trapdoors and explore secret passages between the everyday and the fantastical, a labyrinth whose secrets leads one deeper and deeper into the unknown. At every step, the curious, the lost, and the unwary stumble through an opening to another world - a world unlike any other in contemporary fiction.
