Waking one morning to discover his family missing, Jeff Taylor finds himself a prisoner in his own home. A thick fog has converged on the house, preventing any escape. Inside the walls, Jeff is unable to call for help, and the laws of time and space seem to no longer apply. Now Jeff must take stock of his life as he investigates the emptiness closing in on all sides. The ghostly whispers of his missing family are the only indication that he may not be…alone in the mist.
“Alone in the Mist is an enjoyable short story.
Imagine waking up from a nightmare only to find you are in a nightmare. You can't get anything electrical to work, you can't find your family, and there is a strange mist outside your house. This is what happened to Jeff. Except maybe there was no nightmare. Maybe the nightmare was reality. Maybe reality IS the nightmare. Where has everyone gone? You can't call anyone, computer doesn't work, you can't even get coffee and the mist won't go away.
The perfect story to read on a foggy morning while enjoying a cup of coffee...in a coffee shop. Because you don't want to be alone in your house with the mist outside.”
