Everyone knows about The Devil’s Triangle, but few heard of The Harrowing Hexagon. Army pilot, Greg Handy, accidentally flew his trainer aircraft into it and entered a strange shimmering cloud in 1941.
Transported to an alternate world, he landed on a remote Pacific island, loaded with beautiful island girls. A disease had killed off most of the men. Add to it, only one in five births produced a boy. To restock their men, these lovely women needed to get pregnant, and often.
Greg rose to the occasion, and did his very best to help out, contientious soul that he was. One day the same cloud returned and sent him back to his home, although in 2018.
He hadn’t aged much in the islands and was biologically in his thirties.
He soon learned about virulently polarized politics, terrorism, and mass school shootings. A reporter learned of his amazing story and asked him, “You must have many questions about this new and amazing modern world. What would you ask?”
He stared with bloodshot eyes. “How do I get back?”
