Billy Bunton's way home is mired in a rain storm. Following a exhaustion-inducted nap, he finds brilliant light filling his home. He discovers that he's no longer in his hometown -- he's the only human left.
Billy is soon greeted by alien visitors -- or is he the alien? -- who wish to experiment on him. But when Muffy, his Labrador Retriever, doesn't come to help him.....
AMBER TWILIGHT is a sci-fi short story with nods to The Twilight Zone, Star Wars and Star Trek throughout the prose.
As Billy Bunton naps, a storm ravages his neighborhood. When he wakes up, he finds his house transplanted in an unfamiliar neighborhood. He looks out into an amber sky. He steps outside with his dog, Muffy, to explore his new surroundings. His initial wonder quickly turns to fear as he is confronted by alien beings.
John Fitch V immediately draws us into Billy Bunton’s vision. His engaging descriptive style places us right in Billy’s head. Is Billy dreaming or has he, indeed, found himself in an Alice in Wonderland kind of situation? I enjoyed every second of reading this short story and was completely bowled over by the ending! But I want more! Please do turn this into a novel, Mr. Fitch.
