A birthday for a man who doesn't know his age. A song that taunts a desperate prisoner. A storm bearing down on an unusal roadside motel. A couple finds them all in a mysterious book, said to be cursed, called... The Continuum Tales. In the spirit of The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, this genre-bending collection of seven short plays explores weird, futuristic, and haunting worlds eerily similar to our own. Filled with strange and humorous tales of technology gone wrong, nightmares of the mind, and what happens when we let our fears get the best of us, this modern sci-fi collection is sure to entertain.
