Book Excerpt

He pulled the seal off and lifted the dome. He was ready to enter another world. He was not sure what that world would be, but with UFO in full force, he was sure that world would be better than this one, as all fear was melting away and a glimmer of something better remained. He was not looking forward to tomorrow morning after the high, as he knew that would be one major letdown. It usually took days to overcome. The Button was oddly becoming more ethereal. In his altered state it seemed to glow and waver in the air. Desperately wanting to leave this place, he pushed the button.

In a flash of light he was gone.

And so was The Button.
