A collection of three alternate reality short stories from popular fantasy author John G. Hartness, Balance explores a world like our own, but just a little bit different.
In Balance, the title story, a young girl working at a fast food restaurant is given a special keypad that controls the fortunes of her customers. She finds out the hard way that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
In Lenora, a ragtag group of survivors looks urgently for shelter from an alien invasion. Their salvation comes from the unlikeliest of places...or does it? This is a tale of hope in a hopeless world.
Getting Ahead explores the lengths a father will go to in order to secure a better place for his children. The old desire to see your kids have it better than you did is taken to the extreme in this chilling tale of love and sacrifice.
