The Sound of Time is a quick and surreal novella. The story takes place during the late night move of a business from its old location to its new. As the old place is emptied out, it becomes rather creepy. A discussion of time, and the perception of it, sets the mood for some truly bizarre events.
“…according to Albert Einstein time actually does slow down and speed up. In fact our whole sense of what we call time is really just an illusion.”
Charles, one of the employees seems overly tired and is sent home by the rest of the group. What happens when Charles gets home and tries to get some sleep is where things get really strange. In a dreamlike state, he makes his way back to the group repeatedly, each time only to wake up again in his own bed.
The reality of it all will likely haunt him for eternity.
The Sound of Time is available now as an e-book from Samhain Horror.
