The Man from Taured is a book based on the urban legend of the same name. A man walks up to the customers counter at O’Hare International Airport and is ready to get through customs. He hands over his ID and passport, all official papers, but the customs agent is confused and needs to call for help. All of his papers point to him being from a country called Taured, a place that does not exists and has never existed. Shortly after the confusion, he vanishes. A Homeland Security representative named Noble Randle is called in to investigate and he thinks the answer should be simple, but it turns out that this situation is anything but.

The small town of Knorr, Pennsylvania is the setting for The Wraith. The town is a place where the walls between our reality and the other realities is very thin, and things can sometimes slip through from our world to another – or vice versa. The Wraith refers to an old experiment where a train attempted to travel to another dimension in this town. Now, in the present day a young man hears a train whistle coming and the train station seems to be rebuilding itself. The Wraith is coming back and it’s not alone.
