Tonight, On Ghost Discovery

Do you believe in ghosts?

 

Walter wasn’t sure if he believed but he knew that the ghost hunters on the television show Ghost Discovery didn’t have a clue about anything.

His favorite pastime was watching them scream and run from every little sound while he berated them from the safety of his living room.

That is until he suddenly died and became a ghost himself. Intent on teaching the ghost hunters how scary a real ghost could be he travels to the famous Ghost Museum only to find that ghost hunting is much more terrifying in person than on the television.

With a ghost devouring demon in pursuit, Walter must learn how to access his powers as a ghost or be consumed and cease to exist.

This short story springs from Ed’s love of ghost hunting shows and his off-hand comment that if he ever came back as a ghost he’d have to show up at Zak Bagan’s Haunted Museum in Las Vegas (which happens to be right down the street from him) just to mess with them.

Seat of Destiny

I had this crazy idea - why wouldn't there be some surviving artifact of Jesus Christ in the modern world. What form would it take? 

He was a carpenter after all so it stood to reason that some hand made wooden artifact would have existed and, since he was God, been imbued with his aura.

I thought about some of the things I've built for my Society for Creative Anachronism events and - poof - a concept was born and this story flew from my keyboard.

Down through the ages legends persist of an artifact of Divine power that has the power to heal, raise men to greatness or cast them down. Some call it the Grail, others believe it is something completely different.

Legends say that Roman Emperors have been brought to see the light or cast from power by its mere presence.

The secretive and powerful Templars were reputed to have worshiped this artifact but it could not protect them.

One man’s quest will take him to the edge of the world where he will discover his life’s meaning and come face to face with the power of the Almighty.
