The Sliders land is a barren, desolate world and are stuck there for nearly a month. There they encounter a writer named Isaac Clark, whose stories have a striking similarity to their fight against the Kromaggs, and they realize he may have come from Quinn and Colin's home world. Quinn tracks down the reclusive author, Isaac Clark, who confesses that his "novel" is in fact the history of his birth-world; he too is a slider. He knew Michael and Elizabeth Mallory, who helped develop the bio-weapon that virtually wiped out the Kromaggs of his universe.
He agrees to supply the coordinates that will reunite Colin and Quinn with their true parents and their home world. But when Clark and his daughter slide there with our heroes, it becomes clear that Clark had an ulterior motive for returning: He's an exile with dangerous knowledge about something hideous that happened there twenty years ago. And just when everything seems to be going right for a change, the Sliders are forced to face the fact that nothinger here is what it seems...

"What if you found a portal to a parallel universe? What if you could slide into a thousand different worlds — where it's the same year, and you're the same person, but everything else is different? And what if you can't find your way home?"
