The Before Man: A Short Story

A weekend getaway from university turns sinister.

 

 

 

 

"Another gust of cold, stale wind swept by, dimming the campfire to embers before going out. It was pitch black now, except for the small flashlight in my shaking hands. A sickening crunching noise rustled the leaves. Something drifted over the top of my head like spider webs. The crunching abated, and a low unearthly moan took its place, turning my blood to ice."

Scrap Stories: A Supplementary Novella

In the wake of The Bound's invasion, Lily Masters, Roger Owens, and the rest of the Jumper community attempt to return to normal life. Lily faces guilt, self-doubt, isolation, and the dangers of the Collective. Roger struggles to come to terms with the scars of his past.

Amid their growing relationship, one thing is clear: The Bound have left their mark in more ways than one.


 

Before I started writing THE OTHEROWLRDS: Book Two, I felt there was more to Lily's story, but it wouldn't fit in THE OTHERWORLDS I or THE OTHERWORLDS II. So I decided to add a supplementary work of 3 (semi) short stories called Scrap Stories. How did it get that name? No idea. It's just what stuck.

Scrap Stories has three parts, or chapters, and is in total around 30-40,000 words. Along with Lily's narrative, these stories delve into Roger's character and history, their relationship dynamics, and doubts. Think of it as THE OTHERWORLDS 1 1/2. It expounds on a few incidents between books, but you won't miss anything in Book Two if you skip it. It's a purely optional work for those wanting to stay in the world of Jumpers, Gateways, and the Collective for a little longer. But don't be surprised if a few secrets are in there!

For now, only Part 1: Comfort is available (for free!) to read and share to your heart's content. It has been proofread and self-edited, but not run through a professional copy editor, so typos and mistakes are inevitable.
