This is for Caleb. Rest In Peace. You are cherished and deeply missed.

This is also for The Others, Hayley, Garance, Christopher, Carter and Martin.


This began as a dream during a snooze.

I experienced the dream with interest and with a bit of sadness.

I wrote an article about the dream, posted it on my site, and let it simmer for a while.

At the end of 2016, during the holidays, Martin returned,
standing on the west side of Manhattan, with a full story to tell.

This is his story.


The chapter numbers are subject to change.

As with some intermediate drafts, these chapters may contain errors, typos, and inconsistencies.


Except for the first section of the prologue, and the interludes, this is a work of fiction.
The rest is either a product of the author's imagination, or used fictitiously.
Any resemblance to real persons, places, things, or events is coincidental and unintentional.
