"You're as plain as plain can be" said the father to the daughter, in front of her prom date. Could anyone survive the weight of such crushing words? In this short story courage and cowardice and other unseen realities are examined. Is beauty really only in the eye of the beholder? Perhaps this is because our eyes do not work properly. What would we think if we could see each other- and ourselves- as we really are?

Many joke about world domination but no one expected someone to actually try to get it. What happens if someone tries, and actually succeeds?

Are our actions predetermined by the laws of nature? If so, can we be blamed for anything we do? Even if that something is trying to take over the world? Who are we to get in the way of the ambitions of a madman?

You couldn't get Sid Cynic to believe anything he didn't see with his own eyes. You can imagine his dismay when cars started relying on computers. As a mechanic with a skeptical bent, there was a lot going on that one couldn't see. Sid Cynic knew that real life happened in full color. The rest was rubbish.

In this tale exploring the limits of faith, revelation, and empiricism, Anthony Horvath paints a picture of what can happen when one puts their trust in the wrong place.
