Mysterious Realms
The Dubious Adventures of Eddie and Micki
by Stephanie Jones

The naïve though rather fumbling Eddie Bear and the smart and feisty Micki MacVitie share a comfortable life in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Together they face a healthy dose of adventure, frequently resulting in dangerous situations. This charming collection recounts the escapades of a cast-off old teddy bear and a lively, black-and-white Highland cat and portrays their peculiar adventures in the realms of mystery and fantasy. Journey with these extraordinary friends to Darkest Outer Pongolia, where a sinister hotel with a strange layout and stranger host provide the pair with some unusual hospitality. On beautiful Shuttle Island, site of a GMO research facility, Eddie and Micki uncover the terrible fate awaiting many guests of the so-called resort and come close to permanently parting ways. Closer to home, the two venture into the countryside, where a seemingly innocent camping holiday turns into a hazardous, but rehabilitative, expedition. And in their own neighborhood, Eddie is transported up a beam of light and into a retrospection of his life. Everything is unexpected, anything can happen, and nothing is as it seems to be. Surprises, humor, and loyalty are common currency, and they lead the way to a place where things do work out in the end – a place where a few choccy-biccies and several cups of tea can cure a multitude of ills.

Inspired by impromptu bedtime stories that her father and brother spun for her as a child, Stephanie Jones has crafted a series of short stories that evoke both the fear and joy common to classic fairy tales. Her debut into literature combines the magic of childhood with the thought-provoking challenges of adult life, proving that light-hearted treatment of serious questions can lead to creative and satisfying conclusions. The author was born and raised in England but immigrated to Canada as a teen. She currently resides on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, with her mysterious, fun-loving feline companion, Jasmine.
