The earth is in orbit and there's nothing you can do about it—time, place, and space—the juxtaposition of universal factors leading to a definite outcome. This is the hinge of my latest collection of short stories ‘Blue Flute’—Who are we? Where are we? What are we?

Twelve exciting and original stories of a twisted and turned nature designed to question every aspect of our reality. It is not my intention to give a simple answer.

I have wandered deep into the abyss of secret agents, bruja magic, time travel and a host of other ideas to illuminate the dark magic of time, place, and space. The pieces of the puzzle are all there—it’s up to you to put them together. Can you unravel the mysteries hidden within?

Taking its cue from authors like William S Burroughs and JG Ballard, this book takes an experimental ride with the familiar scifi tropes. The work twists and shifts moving into unexplored territory even when we are on familiar ground.

I have tried to give my readers an entertaining read, but my main intention is to shock into a rapid awakening. Throw off your chains of sleep! You are a secret agent in your life—question is, who are you an agent for?

Looking for something different and unusual? Looking for a short read that will start you questioning? Well, ‘Blue Flute’ might just be for you.
