Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurrence.  It didn't happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this.  Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.  Take a moment to comment here or by writing john@chronicrift.com.

In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome.

"Collective" - Anibal and Helen return to the Dome after Parker's funeral to find the complex in a shambles.  A number of the staff have reverted to a primal animal state while others have locked themselves away in fear.  They are all under the control of a young, troubled telepath who wants to shape the world in her image.  Can Anibal stop her before her influence extends beyond the island?

"Requiem" - It's the day of Parker's memorial service and as Anibal says a few words on his former security chief's behalf, Parker seems to be getting the final word via his discussion with a young paranormal who can talk to the dead.  What does he think of his former collegues and why is he so interested in this one paranormal when he clearly was afraid of them when he was alive?

"Headgames" - Jared is the latest case study for the researchers of The Dome.  There is a major concern as his abilities are similar to the late Dr. Sullivan.  Meanwhile, Anne and Helen are combing through the late doctor's papers and discover some shocking details about his plans for world domination.

Think of this episode as a .5 episode.  It's a shorter story that acts as a bridge between the full length dramas in the series.
