Books by Lindy Spencer:

Being in the wrong place at the wrong time can end your life - or worse, postpone it indefinitely.

 

In Aspen Grove, Oklahoma, fifteen-year-old Katy had everything going for her, until an innocent decision to walk home from school set the karmic wheels in motion. Katy suffered a brutal attack, leaving her comatose. The legal system failed to convict the men responsible for this heinous crime - instead found them not guilty. They’ve gotten away with it, or so it seems.

 

Darnell and Jerome, then boys, now men, continue on with their lives; Bruce Hanson, the attorney tasked with convicting the two attackers, brushes off his loss and continues his climb up the legal ladder; Officer Webster, the policeman who responded to the call for help, the man who destroyed evidence, forgets all about his part in the crime and moves forward in his lazy life. All of this while Katy lies in a hospital bed, still comatose, her life postponed, her loved ones outside of that room hoping and waiting.

 

Several years go by, bringing us to now. Something, or someone, has found a way to bring these individuals to justice; karma in its rarest form is being unleashed on the individuals responsible for Katy's situation.

 

Are they accidents? Could it be coincidence? Perhaps long-awaited payback disguised as the perfect murder? Revenge is a dish best served cold... and karma is a well-thrown boomerang.

A virus with the ability to program one person to kill another has gone missing.

 

Andrea "Andy" Parker, struck and left for dead by a hit and run driver on her way to the church - on her wedding day - is slowly recovering, but at what cost? Plagued by nightmares and secrets she can't share, is Andy going crazy or is it all in her head?

 

Katy Oliver remains in a comatose state to this day. It's been years; is there any possible way she can return to the land of the living, or will her loved ones have to call it quits?

 

Tom Oliver, Katy's brother and Andy's fiance, is stretched to the breaking point. Holding it together is harder every day. Will things start to go right for him, or is a mental breakdown in his near future?

 

Seemingly random members of the community try to come to grips with haunting secrets and frightening memory losses of their own. Could there be a connection?

 

Karma returns to Aspen Grove, and brings its own brand of justice in Ripples of the Boomerang, the much anticipated sequel to The Boomerang Effect.

Welcome, come in. Make yourself comfortable.

 

I invite you to take a journey through these pages as they temporarily draw back the gauze veil that separates us from what crawls around in the dark of night, as well as that which brushes your sleeve as it passes by, unnoticed, on a crowded sidewalk in broad daylight.

 

Glimpse quickly, lest any one of the myriad of evils takes notice. Such happenstance could lead to, let’s say, unpleasantness? The tales within represent the tiniest fraction of the evils present all around us. Before you go further, a warning: what once is known cannot be unknown.

 

It’s time. Come quickly, if you dare. Turn the page. Allow me to call your attention to what lies between the devil and the darkness.

“Submitted for Your Approval,” is the first short-story anthology from Rod Serling Books - a collection of works written in the Serling genre or, in the consensus of the editorial board, a story that Rod, himself, would have considered worthy of being included.

 

As one of the world’s foremost storytellers, Serling was primarily concerned with the well-being of humanity and the creation of commentative works of social and moral relevance. It is with this spirit that our eleven authors submitted their works, which vary in length from short-story to novella. As with Serling’s body of work, not all are tales of fantasy. They are, however, very Serling-like in terms of being thought provoking, concerned with the human condition, and fine examples of the art of storytelling.

 

*This anthology contains "The Organist," a short story also found in the above anthology, "Between the Devil and the Darkness."
