The In Between is the realm of lost souls, those who have passed from this life but not entered the next. Snapshots are the condensed stories of a number of these lost souls, as transmitted to the author in a state of deep contemplation, in which they remember the particular circumstances of their unlikely incarceration. They have not been given a life sentence, or a death sentence, but an indeterminate sentence, one which, as far as they can tell, may never end.

About A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls: The Lost Souls audiobook began airing for free on Podiobooks.com on November 23. “The Flaw in the Fabric, Book 1 of A Travellers Guide for Lost Souls” is a literary historical adventure about 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. Another crack, this one, brought on by a solar storm the Earth’s weakened electromagnetic field can no longer sufficiently buffer, sends Raymond Kidd back to his life as the 19th century merchant captain Oliver Cole, husband of Josephine, father of Amélie. Raymond Kidd comes back the 21st century, 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.
