Elcie Lee can't go back to sleep, can't go back to who she was and what she did not know before that night in the old village hotel. Perhaps she called these manifestations through The Thin in a moment of desperation. Or maybe they have been waiting for her to come along. All she knows is that she is in a race to find out who or what they are -- indeed who or what she herself may be. Pursued by sinister beings, both human and otherwise, if Elcie does not uncover the secrets of her own past in time, she will be the next to disappear.

  1. Mary plumped up her pillows and dropped into them with a heavy sigh. She pulled the sheets and blankets up under her armpits and tucked them under her sides as if she were a giant burrito. She rested her opened book on her chest and began to read.

    A sharp tug yanked her away from her world of cozy love and a vision of soft furry bear rugs, artificial of course, next to a blazing fire that was almost as hot as the protagonist. She glanced over to her not-so-hot lover who was glaring at her.
    “Geeze, Mary. Stop hogging the sheets.” He rolled over to his side with a big huff that was followed by a loud fart headed in her direction.
    Mary tucked the blankets under her side again. Her fingers tapped the book in a slow methodical speed. Her lips were tight as she wondered why she was putting up with him.
