Shatterback is like putting your face through a pane of glass, and then the stench of stagnant pond water fills your lungs. It makes you feel unreal, as though nothing in the world matters, like you’re balancing on a knife edge of emotions, mainly despair tinged with utter desolation. And then darkness consumes you.
And then of course there’s the time warp bit; that’s why I call it shatterback.
A Twist in Time - an anthology of speculative time travel has accepted Shatterback for inclusion in its May edition. A place, a time and a chance to meet the father he never knew. Now maybe that wasn't such a good idea.
