The sun wasn’t even fully up yet, and already the early summer day promised to be a scorcher. Sango stretched as she stood up from the milking, and promised herself that she’d get to those weeds in the far patch before the sun got too high. She gave the cow’s brown side an affectionate pat but ignored the calf in the next stall.

It wasn’t the first time that Eric’s subconscious had a disagreement with his conscious mind, and it certainly wouldn’t be the last.

While the publisher, Scarlet Imprinting, maintains that the book represents actual journal selections written by Aller himself obtained through confidential sources, most critics now believe that the volume was in fact penned by Stephen Caranova, known primarily for his imaginative young adult novels and numerous volumes of erotic fiction written under the pen name Howard O’Brian.
