This is number 23 of my lockdown stories – Crossed Lines. It features Simon and Tom again from the London Institute of Parapsychology but only in the framing story. The Crossed Lines were a real thing in the days of turn dial phones and those switchboards where they would put plugs in and out of a big board to connect you.
The plan is still to publish all of the stories as a book with profits going to a local food bank. If you would like to help, you can give me a suggestion of lead character, genre and location which I can turn into a story. Just email me at email@example.com or comment on this post or message me at my Facebook page Tim Newton Anderson.
