Unusual stories, unusually told probably sums up this quintet. 'The Ditch' has an unexpected ending, 'Flight' tells the story of a man who's sure his plane's going to be hijacked, and 'Thumb' is a really weird, scary story. Add in a couple of others and what you've got is definitely not a comfortable read, but it'll make you think. It's well worth the effort.

In this little group of short stories your author has taken a wrong turning somewhere and ended up writing about romance and relationships. Although the stories are fictional, each has a solid grounding in real events. The author knows this to be so because those events, even the more unusual and improbable ones, happened to him.
