What would you think if you were confronted by a very old man who told you that he was you-only sixty years in the future? What would you do if he said he had traveled back in the past to warn you-that you were in great danger-and unless you did exactly as he instructed you, you would soon die in a horrible accident?
This is the spine of this new short story Lonely Pines, a suspenseful science fiction tale set in a an emergency room in Lonely Pines Hospital in Ohio, circa January 1981. The engaging, dedicated Dr. Hayley Gardner spars with his tempestuous, geriatric self-a patient-turning his life upside down for one grueling evening, with only his romantic interest Nancy-an attractive, smart, and caring young charge nurse-to share his ordeal with.
This conveniently short and engrossing drama will leave you with a sense of wonder and warm satisfaction.

The audio is great. It feels more real than the printed version, because the voice of the reader is so rich and powerful. It is such a pleasure to listen to. I liked the printed version, but really enjoy the ease of an audiobook. It is so relaxing to listen, rather than read.
The ending. It is so uplifting. It also flows really well throughout the story.
His voice and attention to detail is superb.
I found it very enjoyable. It was moving in some parts.
I recommend it strongly. It is great.
