Stitches pull us together. Ephemeral pieces of string.
Thatcher Verra just wanted to be left alone. He wanted to stay inside, away from the fuss and the stress. Away from the people. Inside he was a person, an island, a world all his own.
But individual worlds are sewn together, and none of us exist in a vacuum. Now his power to inflict his emotional state onto others has created an isolationist community that threatens the lives of all within. Can he overcome his anxieties to save them all, and himself?
Interstitches: Worlds Sewn Together features twenty-five stories of such worlds. Each story is fabric, creating a picture of that place for just a moment. All connected, held together with string and glue.
