Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date, years before.

Dr Ewen Cameron was known to be the best Canadian psychiatrist back then, and he…… Continue reading Dark times…

I…… Continue reading Empty…

22h30…

  After driving for a little over three hours, he finally pulled up near Château Frontenac. He knew the capital’s old town was pretty much free from tourists, but he hadn’t expected to find a parking spot so easily. The moon was high and full, over the castle. He stood for a moment, considering which…… Continue reading 22h30…
