The Sandbox is a novel in progress. It is a supernatural horror story set in the air traffic control radar room at Denver International Airport. It revolves around three air traffic controllers at varying stages of their careers, one in his thirties, one in his forties, and one in his fifties. This submission consists of a prologue and chapters one, two and four of the work, which introduce the characters to the reader, including one anonymous character, and set the pace, tone, and mood of the story. Ultimately, the reader witnesses how each of these controllers responds privately and outwardly to egregious, paranormal occurrences which intrude upon them during their high-stress, on-the-air job functions.
