'The Cause of Darkness' is the story of a 16-year-old boy named Teddy Miller set during the last full-year of the American Civil War. Teddy lives with his father and brother in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. They lead more-or-less normal lives even while the War rages around them. But everything changes when their farm is burned, and Teddy's father is arrested and sentenced to hang for espionage. Teddy's single-minded quest to save his father reads like a grand adventure, full of gun fights, horse chases and 19th century justice. There is even a beautiful Pinkerton detective who plays a major role in Teddy's exploits. But nearly all the adult characters act solely in their own self-interest and few have Teddy's welfare at heart. Left without adult guidance, Teddy takes actions to save his father which have consequences that he cannot fully comprehend; and it is the consequences of these actions that drive the novel to its conclusion. ...

Shy orphan Joe Bryant's best friend James sets him up with a job at a long-established scientific research and development company in his hometown of Capistrano. Despite Joe's lack of the basic knowledge required for the position, Trans-Port Incorporated's boss, Professor William Carver, appears only too welcoming. The catch soon appears; Joe is pressurised into being the subject of the team's teleportation test trials. Luckily things turn out well for him. That is until it's explained that the test didn't merely teleport Joe to another place, it sent him to a parallel reality: an identical copy of Capistrano. Almost identical… It's the world Joe's father John escaped to after committing a terrible crime twenty years previously. The process, invented by John himself, is called ‘The Transference'. Now Carver and Trans-Port want Joe to use it again – to bring John Bryant back. But first the stunned Joe needs some answers: like how come he's the only one suitable for the task, who are the mysterious Institute? And why has he never left Capistrano? 

This mind-spinning tale of dual realities will have the reader guessing, then guessing again, as they follow the timid librarian's gradual awakening to the riddles that have dictated his life. As each new revelation brings him closer to the truth Joe is eventually faced with the biggest of them all - the one that could finally break him.

It appears as though the world is crumbling. At the bottom of the murky depths, the 'key workers' emerge. We are at the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic and are the ones trying to keep us from sinking deeper. 

As I work in a British supermarket, and have regrettably been doing it for a number of years, I am in a rather unique position where I can tell the tale of some of the downright ridiculous things that have happened since the COVID-19 outbreak took hold of the country. 

I have long argued that ultimately it doesn't matter what supermarket I work for, or where it's located for that matter, because they are all exactly the same - each and every one of them from Penzance to John O'Groats will be full of the same pitfalls. But with madness and disorder, comedy and daftness can emerge. Of course, the humour stems from humans doing what they do best - not listening to what they're being asked to do and making absolute 'covidiots' of themselves. 

This book is all about the 'covidiots' that have made the experience for supermarket workers like me infinitely more challenging than it should have been. Where there are people, there are 'covidiots'.

That's the plan.
Then the system fails, leaving Christine stranded with no supplies and minimal training for this era. What seems like a bad situation only gets worse when she is flung even further away to a place in time where her choices and actions mean so much more to the world than whether or not she ever makes it home again.

Where are your bones, I wonder?

Your dust, your last breath?

I see you queued with your mates

In your final military assembly:

            Bates next to Beasley

            Gillum next to Green

            And so on.

It is a moment captured forever in brass letters,

The year scuffed and barely legible.

How does a hero sleep?  Do you dream of past valor?

Or soft shoulders and tender kisses lost forever?

This once hallowed ground is swathed in weeds,

Cannons and missiles rusted and impotent,

The fence sagging with age.

People pass by, but nobody sees.

Even the names have become ghosts.

John W. Bebout  2018
