Ace Logan & the Strange Stories
“Deep inside all our souls is a switch that can turn our ordinary lives into something different. Something that belongs to the realm of the unknown. It’s when this switch flips that we find ourselves in the midst of Strange Stories.
Ace Logan & the Strange Stories is a series blending mystery, fantastic, thriller and sci-fi focusing on human obsessions and future utopian and dystopian societies, where even utopian ones become dystopian, as history has shown. The story is told by the voice of Ace Logan, a man whose brain is being exploited by masterminds acting behind the scenes to explore the future and, sometimes, the past for their own ends .
The first Strange Stories collection will include the following stories along with others in the pipeline.
