For your Halloween Horror and delight, Shiny Red Nothing proudly presents the Ship Of Theseus Videobook, with the story read by the author.
I remember it like a dream. In the winter of 2006, my college sweetheart, Sally, died from a heroin overdose. At the time, I was house sitting for Dorothy, my best friend Bruce’s girlfriend, while she was away on business. It was a long walk from Dorothy's apartment to Bruce's. I walked it once and couldn't bring myself to exert the effort again. Her apartment was on the third floor, so there was no way Bruce could get his wheelchair up there to visit me.
You should know that I was not alone in Dorothy's apartment…
Shiny Red Nothing is proud to present Ship Of Theseus, a genre-nuking novel that pits a troubled young writer named Wayne Bird against his own demons before rocketing him 150 years into the future to meet Skyrat, the superhero he created when he was a little boy.
