A special Foreword by Ian Hugh McAllister.
Join them as they explore strange alien worlds, yet find some humanity within its monstrous inhabitants. Come along with an assassin long due for retirement, and a bounty hunter pushing his luck far beyond his competitors. Magical weapons and magical tapestries abound, while one incredible man serves a wife he didn't choose. Meet those who chose not to blindly follow protocol and serve, be that from a teacher, a friend and former lover, or the Queen Goddess herself. Superheroes are sometimes not what they seem, and sometimes allies come from unexpected places.
Each story contains something more than mere plain mortals are accustomed to. What will you find within yourself amongst the "Superhuman"?

I'm dreaming of a Dark Christmas
With every little tale that I read
When the knife blades glisten
And scared children listen
To hear slayers in the night
Where sugarplums can be gory
In the frightening elf story
And trees eat favorite household pets
There are gifts on all the pages
Of terror through the ages
Told of gift giving regrets
I'm dreaming of a Dark Christmas
With every little tale I read
While the bright lights shine
And the family dines In the soft fireplace glow
So hold loved ones tight
It's not Santa visiting tonight
Death lies buried in the snow.

These eight stories explore some of the other "guests" collected by The Infinity, as well as others who encountered the mysterious hotel but did not enter. Some of history's most memorable fictional characters - including Sherlock Holmes and the answer to that one case Dr. Watson wrote about but never published, the true fate of Ichabod Crane and what really inspired a certain storyteller of the Arabian Nights - who will all cross paths with The Infinity.
This second book also helps set the stage for the next book in the series, Expanding Infinity, due out in 2022 and reveals one terrifying mystery regarding our universe.
After all, escaping The Infinity was just the beginning of the adventure!
