About the Book

Benjamin Card's first collection of short stories, in the vein of YA, contemporary fantasy and horror, and psychological drama.

In the title story, Angelo and his wife Kimberly have been having marital issues for some time. Things take a catastrophic turn when one morning an invisible entity in the sky claims Kim's unconditional love...and that of every other female on Earth. Now the women are shouting, crying, and ripping each other apart to earn the love of this mysterious and seemingly non-existent being in the sky. And Angelo, along with every man in the world, needs to figure out a way to snap the women back to reality before it's too late.

These ten subtly unnerving stories all dig deep into the uninhibited recesses of the mind. In "Blind Date", a man discovers that his dream girl may live in a different dimension; "I'll Spend It With You" is a brief glimpse of the afterlife, where two dead lovers may be forced to spend eternity separated; and in the nerve-twisting "Late-Night Snack", young Dennis is constantly visited by his demon-possessed father during the night.

Jennifer Serling, niece of the legendary Rod Serling, provided the foreword.
