Short fictional stories

I publish short fictional stories about people that find themselves in extraordinary situations, caught up in areas that we normally never encounter in our lifetime. Some are victims of progression and/or unusual circumstances, and some might just thrive, simply because they're ahead of their time or easily fit into their new realm. Will they get out, or are they supposed to stay in their "new normal"? Find out for yourself.
