Richard, Rose, Rick, and Kate find themselves drawn to a strange house after long journeys. Richard and Rose are having a fun getaway, Rick is lost returning to college after a weekend visit, and Kate is fleeing confinement in a place where she does not belong. They all end up on the same road that seems to lead to nowhere until it comes to a mini replica of The White House. They're ushered inside by a silent woman in black, who thrusts a room key into their hand that unlocks a truly odd room that's completely out of context. It doesn't take long for them to understand that they've crossed into a strange dimension, and they must escape if they want to preserve their lives. A House Out of Time, by John Decarteret, is an intriguing paranormal tale that will take you through life, death, and what lies in between in the space of just nineteen pages.

A House Out of Time is an interesting tale that weaves the lives of four strangers together into a tale of horror and intrigue. Most interesting is the silent woman who beckons them all in, urging them to discover for themselves what this home is, where they truly are, and their ultimate fate. John Decarteret has written a compelling and shocking short tale that you can enjoy in one sitting but will stay with you long after as you ponder the greater implications of the story. It's an interesting tale that fans of horror and the paranormal will enjoy.
