The Nest ~ In the town of River Landing children are disappearing from their cribs and the FBI is looking for a deranged lunatic. Alden thinks it has something to do with THE NEST that sits atop the giant white pine tree on the island across the river.

Room Number 9 ~ How many women did John Lennon bed in his lifetime? Does he still exist in a strange time warp where women are forced into his company by invisible men who drive skewed automobiles?

A story with a twist you won't see coming.
