In this dark science fiction short story, taking a ride through your partner's psyche can be highly addictive, as Stan finds out via Cortex Composer 8. He witnesses others' personal heavens, hells, outer-inner spaces, and fantasies... but Stan finds there's only one thing he's truly afraid to see.

Review by: Rob Wilkins on May 13, 2013 :
A quite different sci-fi story, it's reminiscent of some of the more inventive and ambitious tales I've read in the past, without reflecting or copying any one of them. It seems strange at the beginning, but the story quickly settles in and the reason for the strangeness becomes apparent. I enjoyed that early transition, and it kept me intrigued to the end.

Only the very end fell a little flat for me; it worked, but didn't quite sparkle in the way that some of the rest of the story had done. However, I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending it -- it's rare that you encounter work that is surreal in this nature, and still both well-crafted and solidly conceived rather than some masturbatory exploration of nonsense. For all its surrealism, nothing in this tale feels either ridiculous or accidental, and as a whole it feels very well crafted.

This story was a surprisingly refreshing discovery, and I'm greatly looking forward to seeing what else the author publishes here.

I love this! Makes you think about what goes on in the minds of those you know and love. Crazy trip down the rabbit hole. Awesome writing.

Surreal, heartbreaking and hallucinogenic science fiction story. This is a very ambitious and mature story, and it is well-told.
