Michael E Bell was born in 1976 on planet Earth, and usually he likes to live there. He cut his teeth on poetry at the tender age of eight, and spent his school years looking for the narrative behind lesson plans.
Now he spends his days keeping up with all the stories backed up in his head, trying to write them before they defect in search of a less barmy outlet. Sometimes, you see, the words want to play, and woe betide he who ignores them.
Get sucked along for the ride as Ralph, Dave and Stephen - three teenagers from Kent in 1989 - are struck by the freakiest storm in history. It blows them into three different dimensions, leaving them lost and alone with only the memory of their friendship to bolster their sanity.
