Touching Distance

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Touching Distance is a tense and disturbing short story about a blind man participating in an innovative virtual reality experiment that aims to equip people like him with a tactile map of their surroundings. As the experiment proceeds, he realises that a harrowing incident from his recent past is being re-enacted on his skin. His attempt to influence the outcome might bring much needed closure, but first he must face his personal demons.

Touching Distance was originally published in issue 7 of Postscripts, the award-winning magazine/anthology series from PS Publishing. This short story received an Honorable Mention in 'The Year's Best Horror and Fantasy' (2006), an anthology edited by Ellen Datlow et al.
