What is it about the past that morbidly compels some people into desperate acts? Acts of pure desperation or madness that culminate in the very worst of consequences, murder, suicide, or worse. Each story attempts to examine the nature of the past and the power that it holds over our lives—the power to teach and inspire us or the power to destroy. The anthology alternately deals with love and loss, madness and hysteria, fanaticism versus liberty, and early death.
In The Ghosts of the Past, an embittered Professor sets out to discover the truth about his mother’s disappearance and confronts the nature of evil itself—an evil that left him scarred both physically and mentally. Requiem introduces us to HOWARD RICHARDS, a guilt-ridden author and academic whose obsession with his wife’s suicide and daughter’s death culminates in an unforeseeable madness and hysteria. In “Objects in Motion”, a young Islamic girl dreams of her own emancipation amidst the violent oppositions of her tyrannical father and beloved feminist professor eliciting a showdown with deadly consequences. In “Objects at Rest”, a woman faces an impossible scenario—she has been transformed into a statue as the ultimate punishment for the evil she wreaks upon others.

Human Physics, Christopher Michael Mansour's first book of short fiction, will shortly be published by The Seashell Books. The young Canadian author lives in Barrie, Ontario and teaches English composition at a small community college. An avid reader and lover of the arts, politics, and literature, Chris's favourite authors include Shakespeare, Ovid, Sophocles, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Alistair Macleod, and Robertson Davies, to name a few.
