Nowick Gray about this book: Two hiking parties meet in a remote mountain pass where their fates hang in the balance. A storm-wracked night brings agonizing choices. In this paranormal adventure novella, does only one path lead to survival?
The core story in Rendezvous is a real-life adventure my family and I experienced in 1987 in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia. (The cover image is a painting of the scene in question, by a local artist.) That adventure, with its numerous challenges and pitfalls, led me to muse on a variety of "what-if" scenarios stemming from the actual story line - most of them disastrous. With the structure of the novella, I conceived of these as alternative timelines or parallel realities.
Once conceived as a "choose your own adventure" tale using hyperlinks, in this eBook version the narrative is apparently linear... but not really. The "Groundhog Day" device of the time loop kicks in, and the main character must do the choosing himself, time after time until he gets it right.
