Overview

What is it exactly that ripples through the human core when trying to balance oneself on the edge of something: a skyscraper’s ledge, a mile-high cliff, a shaking bridge, or, less tangibly, the edge of reason, sanity, anticipation, hope, or even death? What is it that keeps us from slipping and plunging headfirst into the unfamiliar abyss below?

What happens to those who lose their balance? Are they aware of time and space as they near the bottom? Do they unconsciously gauge this journey with precision? Or do they close their eyes and wait for the inevitable?

And what if there is no bottom…?

This spectacular collection of short fiction by Writers on the Edge exposes the mysterious and often unexpected facets of life’s surreal moments, introducing the reader to characters who teeter precariously on the edge of an extraordinary world; the edge of an untamed mind; the edge of what we perceive to be reality:

I Don’t Like Tuna Fish: A dedicated teacher inadvertently discovers how astute her young students can become when given the opportunity…

May the Angels be with You Always: A psychic telephone operator gets more than she bargains for while interpreting the Tarot for a desperate old woman…

Sometimes a Cigar…: A well-known psychiatrist takes a bus trip with some extremely colorful passengers…

Diablo: A young girl takes a remarkable journey to another world in order to learn the truth about herself…

As We Know It: A young woman believes she has the sole power to heal the earth’s people as the world nears its end…

The Coming: An expectant mother awaits in wonder for the latent arrival of...what?

The Taste of Blood in My Mouth: A character in Ayn Rand’s, "Atlas Shrugged” tries to escape from the maze of allegory…
