Tightly written, provocative science fiction and dark fantasies-  tales to incite a reaction and question our modern world.

HJ Furl subjects disarmingly vulnerable characters to distressing conflict in a world of isolation and controversy. A filthy glue-sniffing girl begs you for help at dusk. A racist mother and her young children face certain robotic annihilation. Chaos breaks out on a long-haul flight when a tourist is incapacitated by bugs. Unclad soldiers hunt down a ruthless insurgent. A widower wanders through the wilderness searching for his dead wife and little boy. A male and a female contestant fight a beast in the deadliest game of chance in the world. A schoolboy is challenged to a cruel dare by a bully. Thrill seekers are infected with a deadly virus in their remote jungle retreat. An airman is fated by a mysterious wartime dancer. A three-year-old girl goes missing presumed dead in a blazing inferno. A car crash victim stalks a gigolo hell-bent on revenge…

Is It Today? they meet their fate?

What will you do when the harsh realities of modern life become too much for you to bear?

Will fantasy be your only salvation?

Is It Today? Quotations

The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related that it is difficult to class them separately. One step above the sublime makes the ridiculous… and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime.

Thomas Paine, Age of Reason, II, ad finem

Come into the garden, Maud,

For the black bat, night, has flown,

Come into the garden, Maud,

I am here at the gate alone.

TENNYSON, Maud, xxii, St. I
