This set of short stories delves into the twisted minds of their main characters-gloomy places of questionable morals born of mysterious pasts-exploring dark secrets under a cloud of black humor. With piercing suspense these stories portray the dark side of humanity. From devious associates to dangerous settings, characters try to live a normal life, ignoring the shadows, yet they are inevitably drawn away from the light. The only question is just how far into darkness they will go.
In "Saint's Asylum," the crooked but publicly charming Dr. Angelini trains a new associate in a series of unauthorized experiments. Computer-repair shop owner Shaun's hacker past reappears in "ME.EXE," and he must face the consequences of his former guild connections. "The Tower Card" follows drug dealer Matthew as his drug-induced hallucinations get worse throughout the day, but he has to hide it from authorities in his high school classrooms. "Theta Sector" drags an unsuspecting patient through a setting of survival horror. "The Apothecary" explores one of the many potential characters the classic 'Alice in Wonderland' series has to offer. Seth wakes up in an utterly unknown world in "Always out of Time" but follows clues leading to an unstable scientist who may finally have some answers.
