OUR_PLAN_COVER__only_72dpiOur Plan to Save the World
and other stories of false starts, dead ends, detours and determined people looking for their happy ending.

by Nancy Kay Clark, Phyllis Humby, Michael Joll, Steve Nelson and Frank T. Sikora

Five authors, Canadians Nancy Kay Clark, Phyllis Humby and Michael Joll, and Americans Steve Nelson and Frank T. Sikora, have come together to offer a collection of stories about finding the right path on both sides of the border and beyond. The stories are a mix of fiction styles and genres—literary, historical, psychological suspense, and speculative—but all depict the beginning, middle or end of a life quest. We offer them to you as variations on our plan to save the world—one story, one person at a time.

“Thought-provoking and highly original, this remarkable collection of short stories by five acclaimed authors takes the reader from teen fumblings to the end of life, from the fantastical to the criminal, and from the whimsical to the tragic. This suite of stories will remain with the reader long after the last page is turned.” — Brian Henry, Professor of Creative Writing, Ryerson University, Toronto




Victorian Town

by Nancy Thorne

Abby Parker planned out her whole life: complete her final year of high school, go to college, get a job, move away from her insane family, stay best friends with Jessica.

But, that was before she broke into the nearby tourist attraction and unwittingly answered a call from a centuries-old spirit who dragged her into the 19th century.

Now she must solve a Victorian mystery without getting herself killed, or worse, spend a lifetime trapped in the past, leaving behind everyone she loves and altering their lives forever.

When she meets gorgeous Benjamin, the future looks a lot like wreckage.

    I’m enjoying my copy of this short story anthology. It has such a great variety of stories and poems. I’m a regular reader of and was thrilled to see some of my favourite authors such as Brad Gischia and Frank T. Sikora. I love anything that they write. One of my favourite stories from CommuterLit has been included, Soldier’s Last Wish, by Phyllis Humby. I’m looking forward to rereading the stories that I love and reading some that I’ve missed. What a great gift for my friends that like short stories.
