The Museum of Possibilities


The work begins with stories of people discovering the consequences of their actions – or inactions – that are full of psychological suspense, and verge on the supernatural. A second grouping, of flash-fiction, features the antics of the jealous, bitter, isolated and fearful who are trapped inside their own domestic purgatory. Last is a series of linked stories about the coming-of-age saga of air force brat Wanda – her first moments of sacrifice and jealousy, of sexual experimentation, of empathy and of desperation.
