Man is the strangest of all created creatures. His actions are often dictated by reflex, more often by needs and desires, sometimes by well thought out plans and quite often by on the spot decisions. Man often may seem the most irrational of all creatures and his deeds can make one wonder if he is, as touted, the highest form of life. A man''s thoughts are always more strange than his actions for thoughts have no physical or spiritual limits, no set rules that must be followed, no constraints that have to be obeyed, and no fear of being discovered. Within this small anthology of short stories, you will visit a hallowed church ravaged by war, a haunted house waiting for just the right person to arrive, sinister cats, and the unrestrained forces of nature. There is no set theme that flows through the writings. There are the scary little horror stories that may give you a chill, stories about everyday life, and tales of what may be. The only common factor is that they are the result of imagination, that rebel of society and social norms. It is imagination that frees the slaves of conformity. It is imagination that allows all men to become super heroes, rock stars, inventors and explorers. It is also imagination that allows men to visit the dark side of life without fear of embarrassment or persecution. It is imagination that helps a child to grow and develop and it is imagination that allows men of vision to forge ahead and make our society what it is today. So walk up the stairs of the belfry and discover what you will as you peer out through the steeple window.
