A couple of youngsters find that they can step sideways into a parallel world which equates geographically to their own, but is barren. They discover that one of their old neighbours, a former war pilot, has been there once and that his fiancee is trapped there by her sister. Their friend is rendered senseless by the shock of travelling to the other world and they travel to the other world to cure him and to release her.


Little more than your average parallel world story with a quest-like journey across the unknown land to free someone. Not desperately exciting.
