New Release – ‘Far Away in Time’ by Maria Savva
My friend and fellow author, Maria Savva, has just released a new collection of short stories. Following is a brief excerpt from one of my favorites:
Teaser from ‘Far Away In Time – Part I’
Angie meets Mr Silverfrost
‘Don’t be alarmed. I can explain. But you have to suspend belief first.’ His grey eyes stared into hers.
‘Yes. It’s not going to be easy for you to accept what I’m telling you. You have been so brainwashed into believing so many things.’
‘I really have to go,’ said Angie, suddenly struggling for air. ‘I can’t—’
‘You’re hyperventilating, that’s all. Please breathe deeply and sit in my chair. I will try to explain.’
‘But I have to go and collect the children.’
‘They will be fine. Time is relative.’
Angie shook her head in confusion. ‘Relative to what?’
‘Let’s just say that a minute to me is an hour to you and vice versa.’
‘You’re not making any sense.’
He rubbed his chin. ‘See what I mean? It’s hard to explain anything to someone who has been so conditioned to accept one way of looking at things. At one time people also believed the earth was flat, you know.’
‘So you’re telling me this is some kind of parallel universe?’
‘If you want to think of it that way, yes. I exist and I don’t exist, in the same way as you, my dear.’
