• ‘TURN THE PAGE’ Fri 6/28/13 ‘The Old Soul’

    Since the Show is all about travel today as we broadcast live from Boscov’s Travel, I am sharing a book that is a quick easy read, great for summer travel reading!  ‘The Old Soul’, a 6,000 word novella, is an enthralling blend of science fiction and speculative fiction that chronicles the adventures of That-Which-Had-Been, as it traverses the fearsome wilderness of the micro-universe. As tiny and inconspicuous as it may seem, That-Which-Had-Been exhibits an unexpected and varied gift for survival, as it journeys implacably toward its ultimate destination. Along the way, it meets a rich array of ordinary human beings, some of whom assist it along its way, others who impede its progress, none of whom have any idea of its existence.     From whence comes the strange, but universal, experience of deja vu? Why do some people exhibit a wisdom far beyond their age and experience – persons reincarnationists refer to as ‘old souls’? Joseph Wurtenbaugh in this short story offers a fascinating and tantalizingly plausible explanation for these phenomena, presented in a natural setting that brims with adventure and exhilarating possibility. Not to be missed by anyone who enjoys science fiction or thinking outside the box.
