Open Ended Threat: A Cave Creek Anthology

Edited by Dean Wesley Smith

Cave Creek, Nevada—Where the Unexpected Meets the Real World

In present day Cave Creek, a powerful and dangerous current flows beneath the town’s peaceful and prosperous surface.

Strange, unexplained events long chased residents out of this former mining town nestled in a hidden canyon north of Las Vegas from the very beginning. The first anthology in this series, Bitter Mountain Moonlight, illustrated that.

But now, portals to other timelines appear and disappear in the desert and rocks around town. Sometimes the portals open only for seconds, other times long enough to threaten lives.

The stories in Open Ended Threat recount the stories of those who slip through from the future or the past and explain how the residents keep the town’s secrets.

“Anniversary” by E.R. Paskey

Book Cover: No Defense

After giving up the worst goal of his NHL career and at the worst possible time – overtime of the Stanley Cup Championship Game 7 -- Tyler McKenzie flees to Africa. But even a safari into the famed Serengeti can’t wipe away the sting of his failure. He sees it everywhere he looks.

Except when he looks into the eyes of Angie Smolinski, an outspoken, bull-in-the-china-shop firecracker he finds far more interesting than any of the beauties back home.

They fall head over heels for each other until the firecracker explodes like a bomb.
