Conundrums is a collection of enigmatic tales to spark your imagination and challenges reason.
The first story, The Guests, centers on a professor named Anthony Pace. Anthony has a secret that’s been eating at his soul for years. Liberation from this secret requires telling a tale that takes place on a war-torn planet. A survivor struggles to maintain his sanity while exacting revenge on the extraterrestrials who still occupy his home. Embarking on a desperate quest to find those who formed a rebellion, the survivor befriends an unusual yet insightful companion who aids him in his search. Exposing this story will likely free Anthony from his misery but at what cost?
Our second story, The Convergence, poses an interesting question; what would you do if someone stole your life? Not "stole" as in the facile act of identity theft. "Stole" as in replaced. In this tale, a poor soul faces this seemingly hopeless predicament. But her misfortune doesn't end there. Not only is she being replaced, but the usurper's agenda makes it nearly impossible to be angry with her.
Third, we have The Node; a story of loss. Loss of family, friends, home…loss of life. It’s also a story of perseverance during trying times. Times when survival is all that matters. Times when you discover war is hell. Especially when you don't know who you're fighting.
Open Waters focuses on Devin and Gregory, a pair of very special twins. Their relationship is challenged and put to the test when Devin joins the Navy and leaves his special needs brother to fend for himself. Only, as it turns out, Gregory isn’t so helpless after all.
The fifth story is Skin Deep. A futuristic prisoner, serving a life sentence, struggles with existence. As if this weren’t enough, the prisoner couldn’t die if it wanted to. It lives to serve; nothing more. Skin Deep is a tale of conflict between morality and reparation. Both equally important but where do you draw the line?
Next, is Thomas’ Folly. Thomas is arrogant, cruel, selfish, and a reluctant werewolf. In an attempt to be rid of the troublesome curse, he consults Zira, a voodoo witch. The two can't seem to agree on whether being a werewolf is a good thing or not, but Zira offers to help regardless. But will things go as smoothly as Thomas hopes?
