On a whim, feisty Tabitha takes a trip to the future with her trusted friend Milt, an awkward Science professor. Wonders and curiosities abound. However, their amusing journey soon becomes a challenging maze of difficult decisions. When an unplanned detour occurs, the two set events into action that may save one life and yet destroy another. Can these friends of completely different mindsets agree on a course of action? Amid the backdrop of a future that reveals great wonders and horrors, Detours in Time starts as a fantastic escape and grows to present many moral dilemmas and surprises that can either destroy the strongest friendship or bring two people closer.




A Word from the Author

Author Pamela Schloesser Canepa pictureI started writing Detours in Time for fun and an imaginative getaway from reality. It will certainly take you on a journey. However, some elements of me are definitely threaded throughout this book, such as the importance of family, friendship, and love. There is a friendship with the potential for love in this story. This book is not a sci-fi romance, but the main characters, Pinky and Milt, learn a lot about each other and even grow as people during this book. There are also a lot of ethical dilemmas involved. Our characters have to decide if they are royally screwing things up just by showing up where and when they do. They don’t just go to 2047, they accidentally get knocked back, and from there, the trouble ensues. As the characters say to each other, time is not always a neat, straight line. In their circumstances, time is a loop.

Imagine a world where people no longer choose their friends.

Two school friends, different in every respect, drift apart in search of themselves. One flits from dodgy deal to get-rich-quick scheme while the other fights for freedom and justice.

The psychosocial media app, frenzship, takes the world by storm, revolutionising the very meaning of friendship and propelling the old friends onto a collision course.

Is frenzship the reinvention of true friendship and meaningful relationships for the information age or a dangerous cult bending the minds of the young and impressionable?

The friends’ schoolboy pact is invoked. Will their friendship transcend the conflict? Does a mate come running no matter what?

Frenzship is another thought-provoking novel by Ray Glickman, WA Premier’s Award shortlisted author of Reality




A Word from the Author

author Ray Glickman pictureToday we are all seemingly governed by our social media accounts. Researchers have recognised that the buzz we receive from likes and followers is akin to a drug rush. But what if it was taken even further?

frenzship heralds a new era of meaningful online relationships and is the next-generation of Facebook, a new form of ‘psychosocial’ media that reinvents the concept of friendship in the Information Age. But as with all new technology and interfaces, it is blamed for the deviant behaviour of some devotees.

frenzship is a punchy, provocative read. A psychological thriller that will make you question all you know about social media and how much you feed into it. In frenzship you’re encouraged to explore the mysterious, enduring nature of what makes true, real, physical connections and examines how this concept is evolving in times of disruptive technological change.

The sun has broken through the inevitable hole in the Earth’s atmosphere, and the only survivors are those underground during the event. Seven young people, led by a girl in a wheelchair, her nerdy high school attendant, and a boy with Down Syndrome, meet in the ruins of a private school in their hometown of Marion, Massachusetts. One finds a portable radio in a ruined basement, and the group hears the plea of the one station still broadcasting. “Please come to Rockport.” So begins a journey across the length of the state, in hopes of finding the one parent who may still be alive.




A Word from the Author

Author Buddy Cushman pictureRosy is in her wheelchair, Matt is her nerdy attendant for the summer, Home Slice has Down Syndrome. They are underground in an aquarium when the sun burns through the Earth’s atmosphere and cooks the entire, 24-hour rolling planet. They make their way to the burned surface, miraculously find a way to keep Rosy’s chair charged and, after discovering their families and homes and everything they knew is gone, find their way to the ruins of a school in their hometown of Marion, Massachusetts. There they meet up with four younger boys, and when one of them discovers a still working portable radio in the ruins of a basement the group scans the dial and finds just one station still broadcasting – WANN in Rockport. That leads the group of seven on a journey across the state, and along the way they are joined by a family hiding in the underground Tube, and later, an alcoholic scientist who has given up on life. It’s just possible, they all come to believe, that one parent remains alive – in Rockport. This is a story of hope in a seemingly¬†hopeless world, and faith – faith in each other, and , eventually, faith in miracles.
