The Escapists

Sun Shines Bright Behind an Eclipse of the Mind

The first Escapist, Thomas, takes a forced vacation from reality to confront his inner demons in a most unusual locale: the moon. 


A Trip Down Memory Lane

Forest fires, hissing snakes and giant snails plague the imagination of this tormented protagonist. A surrealist portrait of isolation and its effects on the mind, the second Escapist recovers after the death of a close friend.


Lost in the Woods

After we colored in the last blank spaces on the map, what became of our Lewis and Clark types? Our trailblazers? For Henry, the third Escapist, the end of high school harkened the end of an era of carefree exploration. Now he must choose between the life society has set up for him or getting Lost in the Woods. 


AMERICAN FABLES is a collection of pieces authored by Zachary D. Turner. Here you can find The Escapists series, reviews, and other assorted works of fiction.

Also, a sincere thanks from the author who has lived a composite life built on the work of all the magnificent characters he ever had the pleasure of knowing.
