Sebastopol, CA November 22, 2011 - (PressReleasePoint) - CKDU FM Halifax, to begin airing Thursdays at 8:30am Atlantic time, episodes of the literary historical adventure “The Flaw in the Fabric, Book 1 of A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls” by Jim T. Lindsey of Nova Scotia and published as an ebook by SeaStorm Press in Northern, CA. Arcadia House Publishing in Halifax will be publishing the print version in early 2012.
The Flaw in the Fabric is a world in which the boundaries of space and time are developing stress cracks. Through one such crack, brought on by a hurricane in the ghost-infested province of Nova Scotia, two temperamental brothers Daggon reincarnate after spending two hundred years as lost souls in the neither-here-nor-there land of the In Between. Angle is a recovering pirate. Octave is a weak, momma’s boy grown bold. They’re as surprised to be back as Raymond Kidd is to find them in his basement. A week later, while still wondering how to cope with his unnatural visitors, Raymond himself falls through another crack. This one, brought on by a solar storm the Earth’s weakened electromagnetic field can no longer sufficiently buffer, sends him back to his life as the 19th century merchant captain Oliver Cole, husband of Josephine, father of Amélie. After a voyage to Calcutta where he meets a mad Tibetan monk, Captain Cole faces difficult choices. His love for Josephine and Amélie is strong, but his love for his wife in the future, Cat McCallum, is strong too. And in the future, Cat is summoning him back, with the help of Angel and Octave and Raymond’s father and an old fisherman who was once a detective. Raymond Kidd comes back, but not the way that anyone intended. Chance and Karma and the mad old monk intervene. In between here and there, Raymond is given a mission. He must write A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls.
