Remember how it felt as a kid with your imagination running wild? You could fly, you could walk through walls; you could do anything you wanted! I used to think I could enter a toy store and walk away with all kinds of goodies, never really giving thought to how the whole invisibility thing work.
In Losing Touch by Christian A. Larsen we meet Morgan Dunsmore a man at odds with himself. His life is going nowhere, he’s lost his job, his wife is recovering from back surgery and bankruptcy is looming in his future.
One morning while sitting on the toilet a strange thing occurs. He has somehow fallen off, but not quite, the toilet. It’s as though he fell through! Little by little more strange things happen. When eating at times his food falls through him contained only by his boxers. Drinks run through his body as if he were a sieve. Slowly the realization hits him; his body is fading in and out of solidity. Like his life he is losing touch.
Morgan hides what’s happening to him from his family as he begins to learn how to control this phasing, as he calls it. At first he’s capable of little things, like reaching through a drain to find a ring but as he experiments more he learns that he can walk through walls at will. Thus the stirrings of a way to financially help his family are awakened.
Not wanting to give too much away I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of this book and find out for yourself where this all leads to. An easy read that leaves you wanting more by this author! Check out Bleed an anthology edited by Lori Michelle which I reviewed here in August, Christian’s “The Funeral Portrait” is included.
