‘The Obscurity of Air’ By Nicholas Varey

The mighty zeppelin, The Edge of the World, is on a one-way destination into the mysterious orb dubbed “The Hole in the Sky”. In the final hours of the flight, Michael, a scarred soldier, encounters the strangely familiar Cheri, and all that has come before their meeting is suddenly brought into question.
