New fiction explores phenomena, unexplained illusions. This thought provoking tale begins when three old men have a sense that something is about to happen. Something does happen, but it would be the last thing they could ever expect. That day a portly man buys an empty building in their town and sets up in business. He names his store, The Emporium of Illusions. Then things happen and by word of mouth news spreads exciting a mixture of disgust, outrage and strange attraction: the book questions the difference or lack thereof, between reality and illusion. A metaphysical joyride: The Emporium will entertain even the most jaded reader with its surreal delights.
