Cover art description: A theater with the front two rows of seats visible. There are three stage doors, with a strip of thick blue curtain above them, forming a top frame for the stage. The one on the left opens not to backstage, but to a seascape, with a few seaweed-covered rocks, and a couple flying seagulls. There are some clouds in the sky. The waves are sloshing through the doorway onto the stage, and the water is running down the left side of the stage into the audience. There is one seagull standing on the stage, looking across it. The middle door opens to a hot desert, with distant mountains beyond the dunes. Some of the sand has blown through the doorway onto the stage, extending one of the dunes through the doorway. The third door, on the left, opens to a field at night, with a few flowers in the grass. Not far from the door, the grass meets a body of water, with moonlight reflecting off of it. Beyond the water, is more grass, and a few trees. The night sky in the lefthand door has a moon and clouds, with stars above them. The stars climb up the side of the picture, fading over the strip of curtain, and into a space-scape over the whole picture. Sheets of green aurora light mingle with the stars on the right, and toward the left there are two spiral galaxies, and a glowing nebula.

When Shakespeare wrote “all the world’s a stage”, nobody took it literally.

Anthony Ballrain knows that as well as anybody, but when his walk home from work takes him past a door he’s been dreaming about, he feels like it’s his cue to exit. Stepping through, he finds himself in a seemingly uninhabited world that has only a casual relationship with reality. When he finally finds other people, they’ve already met him, and what’s more, they really, really don’t like him.

In a world where the impossible happens on a regular basis, Anthony is forced to confront a darker side of himself. Unfortunately, it’s getting harder for him to figure out just which side that is.
