SHORT STORY COLLECTION
THE CLOCK STRIKES A NEW MIDNIGHT—ONE WHERE EVERYTHING CAN CHANGE.
What does a lonely girl surviving the night in a gothic house have in common with a retired policeman recalling a lost case? What about a hospitalized woman who swears there's an exact double of her out there and a grief-stricken narrator haunting a train station? A man facing his past in a frozen lake and another one facing his future in a burning chair? And a young painter in the quest for true art, with a weary truck driver in a dystopian future?
They are all about to enter dark territories, places where wit and instinct form the only compass for survival. The night is young, only they don't know it yet... And when the night begins to show its stranger side, by way of a subtle, nocturnal hint, it's already too late to turn back.
