Dead Time

A Novella by

A beautiful but private girl on campus. A loner who falls in love with her. And a fraternity that wants to keep them apart.

Tim hasn't moved on - even though it's been decades. He still hasn't gotten over the lovely and radiant Joan.

He can't stop thinking back to 1970 and that private college in eastern Pennsylvania - wishing he could somehow alter the events of a single night near the Susquehanna River.

Tim had been watching Joan for two years. She was alluring, but distant, even a little enigmatic. And she's been seeing the same guy at the football fraternity forever, and some people want to keep it that way.

Especially Ron, the pulling guard on the football team, who most resents Tim seeing Joan - as if the fraternity brothers are enforcers.

It was during that same year when Tim got the condition he began to think of as dead time, where his mind would go blank, limbs would fall numb, and he'd actually wonder if he was still breathing.

The only thing that kept the condition at bay was the thrill of falling for Joan.

After all these years, he's anxious about why the condition became permanent - must he love Joan in the afterlife? Will that cure him?

Joseph Eastburn wrote this story based on a real college experience.

He also writes thrillers. In reviewing his first novel, "Kiss Them Goodbye," re-released in 2016 by HarperCollins, The Armchair Detective wrote, "One of the most thoroughly bizarre mystery/ suspense novels in quite some time, creating and eerie, atmospheric, and compulsively readable tale... a gripping, intriguing book... This is a writer to watch."
