Crossed Paths, Crossed Lives

By David Leemhuis

Martin Brisby makes an impulsive decision to leave Thorn Valley, accompanied by his best friend Lambert, to see the NIMH laboratory for himself. Unfortunately his absence causes further complications after a harbinger of doom arrives, in the form of a strange but familiar mouse. This story is set two years after “The Last Moving Day.” The original version was written between March and December 1989.

Cyril and Alma

Entry in a Journal

By Nick Schmidt

A short narrative of the memoirs of William of NIMHmuck; a good little read and introduction to Nick's character.

Freethorn

By David Leemhuis

This story is based on three short stories written in 1990 and 1991 and takes place in the days following “Crossed Paths, Crossed Lives,” beginning the day after. I decided to consolidate them into one story, expanding upon events I’d previously touched upon that happened during that period or were detailed in later stories. The Rats and Mice formerly of Thorn Valley welcome new arrivals that swell the latter’s ranks—some with surprising origins—and otherwise adjust to life in the colony’s new location.

Freeze Frame

Now that his 'nephew,' Dante, has joined the rats of NIMH and his friends have deserted him, he feels he must face his past by creating a new future for himself--by joining Dante. A short sequel to "The Children of NIMH."

Justin's Troubles
