This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In this stand alone short story will the beliefs of the main character stand firm, or will he come to accept the world and to a greater extent the Universe is a complex place where everything is not so straight forward.
Joshua is a retired engineer, but was not just an engineer by trade; he was one by heart. Ever since he was a child he has been fascinated by the mechanisms and machines that the human race has created. His mind is methodical, pragmatic and his beliefs stand firm in facts and reason. What is observable, testable and measurable is what exists and everything else is simply myth or theory.
His heart felt understanding of the world though is disrupted and altered by the strange sighting of a unexplained figure or what is more commonly thought of as a ghost. Will this experience alter his beliefs or will the ghosts of his previous values stand firm?
Chris J Mitchell: "Everything we see in life is not black and white. Our beliefs are not always correct and even when we are sure of something we should be open to changing our minds. In that sense this story is not focused around a ghost or revealing the character of one, but the sighting of what the main character assumes is a ghost serves the premise of the book well."
