A Life of Death by Weston Kincade

A Life of Death starts with an interesting concept.  Alex, the story’s protagonist, can relive the dying moments of a person’s life by holding something that they were touching at the time of their death.  You would think there wouldn’t be many objects being touched by people as they were dying, but it turns out Read More…
