Publisher's Summary

What would you think if you were confronted by a very old man who told you that he was you-only sixty years in the future? What would you do if he said he had traveled back in the past to warn you-that you were in great danger-and unless you did exactly as he instructed you, you would soon die in a horrible accident?
This is the spine of this new short story Lonely Pines, a suspenseful science fiction tale set in a an emergency room in Lonely Pines Hospital in Ohio, circa January 1981. The engaging, dedicated Dr. Hayley Gardner spars with his tempestuous, geriatric self-a patient-turning his life upside down for one grueling evening, with only his romantic interest Nancy-an attractive, smart, and caring young charge nurse-to share his ordeal with.
This conveniently short and engrossing drama will leave you with a sense of wonder and warm satisfaction.

"Something about those eyes ..."

Any additional comments?

January, 1981, and an emergency patient is admitted to the hospital at Lonely Pines, Ohio John Smith has severe chest pains and looks old, very old, possibly over one hundred years old. But he seems to know more about the doctor than he should ..

This delightful if predictable short story, well conceived and written, was a pleasure to hear and Kenneth Campbell's slow gentle delivery fitted the text in pace and style.. My thanks to the rights holder who gifted me a copy of Lonely Pines, via Audiobook Boom. Reminiscent of tales from The Twilight Zone, it was poignant and very enjoyable.
