Publisher's Summary

Experience three exciting stories of fantasy and science fiction, each immensely different from the last.
"Feral" - Deep in the heart of Africa, a remote tribe harbors a terrifying secret. Descendants of an ancient predator, the villagers share an ability known as the Change, allowing them to take on the form of a deadly beast. The adults have full control over their powers, but the children remain wild and untamed. When a little girl escapes, consumed by her instincts, it is up to Bo to hunt her down and bring her home. Can he stop her before she makes her way to the nearby human village...or will the fragile peace between the two tribes shatter into war?
"The Other Side of Nowhere" - In a hospital in Georgia, a young farmer named Johnny Abram struggles to stay alive. Between the waking moments on an operating table and a series of vivid dreams, he sees his life flash before his eyes. For a while, he isn't sure which reality is real, but when a mysterious door suddenly appears and beckons him, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare, and the real battle for his life begins.
"Meeting Jonah" - Dr. James Harper never expected to be psychoanalyzing the first living machine, but life is full of surprises. That's exactly what Jonah, the first level-7 AI, is - a surprise. He's brilliant, gentle, and more than the sum of his parts. But what happens when the men in white coats decide to end their little experiment? Will James sit by and watch as a sentient, thinking being is put to rest...or will he take a stand?

Gripping stories

If you could sum up The Other Side of Nowhere and Other Stories in three words, what would they be?

Three gripping stories. All different and uniquely entertaining. This is a fun quick read and will leave you wanting more.

"He had felt if before, but now it was stronger, like the sleep that finally comes after so many nights of restlessness. A lifetime of insomnia, finally at an end."

"He pulled on every thread until he gripped them all together. Dipped a piece of himself into them, each and every bit of information lighting up at once, and they came alive like stars."

"The grains of sand sparkled like a hundred million tiny oceans..."

Three thought provoking stories

Any additional comments?

I listened to these three short stories and found each of them uniquely thought-provoking. They were enjoyable; however, they all had that mysterious, what-just-happened, type of ending that doesn't quite leave a listener feeling fulfilled.

I loved that they were the perfect length for listening start-to-finish on longer commutes.

The narration was fine - but audio production needs to work on adding appropriate silent spaces between scenes and stories.
