"There have been many tales of parallel worlds, but few have this much heart, imagination, and good old-fashioned storytelling fun."
- Steve Pick, radio host and author
What if there were another world tangled up with ours, but hidden? What if you found a way to go there?
Billy Boustany stumbles upon the ability to slip in and out of a surprising new version of his sleepy midwestern city. He begins a journey that is most fun he's had in years. Then it turns into an obsession that upends his life, his family, and everything he knows.
A Universe Less Traveled (Book 1 of Intersecting Worlds) tells Billy's story, framed by tales of other accidental visitors to this mysterious city, and provides a glimpse into an alternate history of the twentieth century.
Looking for an escape from the troubles of his failing business, Billy discovers a teeming metropolis with iridescent skyscrapers and throngs of tourists from all over the world. He meets odd, engaging characters and is swept up in a raucous street celebration.
Billy questions his sanity as he struggles to make sense of this bizarre experience. Though he fears screwing up his adventure, he lets his college student daughter in on the secret. Together they go further into this amazing place until they reach the ultimate destination, a magnificent city of Native Americans that has sprung up at an ancient site.
Billy also encounters a formidable enemy—the Knights, a shadowy organization with a mission to keep people like him out of their world. They warn him to stay away—or else.
When his daughter disappears at the hands of the Knights, Billy and his wife go on a frantic search to find her in the other city. It leads to heartbreak, then to a new beginning.
