The Ink Slingers Guild was born when two aspiring writers decided they wanted to create a group of like minded individuals for help and support. This collection is based on one of the practice exercises done at every meeting. The exercise is to have three members each pick one word. Those words are shared and a timer is set for five minutes. Laying pen to paper or tapping with fervor on their keyboards each person writes as much as they can in that time, but it must include those three words. The best part is the sharing of these compositions, often hilarious and always inspiring! And the concept of this book was born. Three words were chosen: - Supernatural - Door - Castaway The rules were simple: you must use all three words OR the concept of the words within your story, it must be a short story, and it must be PG-13. Ten authors stepped up to the challenge and went Beyond the Threshold. Enjoy!
