Infinite Waters: 9+1 Speculative Fiction Short Stories (Kindle Edition) by Nicholas C. Rossis
Product Description on Amazon:
Ten speculative fiction short stories and flash fiction, written by the award-winning author of Pearseus and Runaway Smile.
Although they seem to be concerned with various themes, there are certain passions that run through them.
What is the nature of reality; digital and corporeal? Is there more to the world than we can see?
How far can we trust our senses? What are the consequences of our actions, and is it possible to change them? And if so, would we simply repeat same mistakes, or make new ones?
The anthology includes the following stories:
“Infinite Waters”: A woman seeks her future at a carnival. She discovers more than she expected.
“The Twist in the Tale”: A confused woman meanders through a sleepy town. But not all is as it seems.
“James’ Life”: A man with nothing to look forward to but oblivion, discovers it’s not that easy to escape his life.
“What’s in a Name?”: A trip to the tropics has an unexpected ending.
“The Lucky Bastard”: How far will the luckiest man alive go to escape his luck?
“Two’s a Crowd”: Blood runs thicker than water. Especially when you spill it.
“Is There a Doctor in the House?”: A high school student just loves to experiment.
“Sex and Dinner”: A timeless combination. Or is it?
“Would You Like Flies With That?”: Nothing’s scarier than a supermarket.
“*The Hand of God”: Nothing has prepared a grizzly veteran for this meeting *.

Humorous and poignant, these short stories are exciting, intriguing and imaginative.
My favorite short story is the one with the twins that hated each other so much that they fought each other while having lucid/astral projection dreams…
In this dreams their thoughts about each other guided the outcome of this very scary experience.
