The poor magician’s almanac

Kebab man said that because I was friends with Stella he’ll to cut me deal and only charge me $1500 to investigateT8.  That’s half his normal rate he pointed out.  I got paid that much once for a bare knuckle fight.  I asked him if I couldn’t afford $800 how did he think I was goingContinue reading “The poor magician’s almanac”

Garment industry > necromancy

After I left it occurred to me that I never considered if Jackie was actually capable of reading minds.  Does that mean I’m getting jaded?  Doesn’t seem good whatever it means. I called Jackie’s contact who he said that his necromancy consulting fee is $800/hour.  When I said I couldn’t afford that and he hungContinue reading “Garment industry > necromancy”

The Librarians in the Quest for the Lying Liar’s Lies

I called a couple of the professor’s ghost clients pretending to be his assistant.  I’ve been lying a lot lately.  I don’t love it.    I was following up to make sure their ghost eradication needs were still met.  And since I had them on the line I asked where they had heard about the serviceContinue reading “The Librarians in the Quest for the Lying Liar’s Lies”

The ghost embezzler’s wife

My next idea was to call the professor.  I’ve been trying to keep the lines of communication open with him even though I suspect him.  Of what I don’t know.  Something.  He hasn’t responded to me in a while.  Now I know why.  He’s in prison.  I called what used to be his office number,Continue reading “The ghost embezzler’s wife”

Ghosted

I was tempted to call Stella’s mom for a necromancy consult.  But not very much.  Ultimately I decided it was a bad idea.  Terrible idea.  I tried to remember everything Stella told me about what she was doing the night we met.  I couldn’t recall much.  Either she never told me the exact details orContinue reading “Ghosted”

RIP Stella

T8 says she remembers being in a car accident in Hong Kong just like the police said.  She didn’t see the other car coming she just remembers being thrown violently.  The seatbelt breaking.  The searing pain.  She remembers being twisted in a way that her body doesn’t go.  She said it felt like it tookContinue reading “RIP Stella”

People who died

Henry told me we had to go to Gatesville to speak with the girlfriend’s cousin’s hairdresser’s boyfriend’s niece’s friend.  I will give her the codename T8.  What Henry didn’t tell me is that she’s in the prison in Gatesville.  What the fuck is wrong with everyone?  Why don’t they tell me things?  This isn’t aContinue reading “People who died”

OOC – Writery writer writering

I’ve started re-writing and posting this blog on Wattpad.  I’m enjoying it.  Mostly I’m just updating stuff from the early days to make it more “Grace-ian” but I’m coming up to some parts that I am going to change fundamentally. The blockchain is forking! Usually when I write an anticlimax it’s intentional because I findContinue reading “OOC – Writery writer writering”

Magical Minority Person

How racist is it of me that I’m less surprised by someone with a Chinese background believing in magic?  Some.    Andrea’s sister.  Waldrum and Berner.  Now Henry Fong.  I wonder how many cops are out there who either know, or could be easily convinced based on what they’re seen, about magic and don’t talk aboutContinue reading “Magical Minority Person”

Here I go again with the religious stuff

Last night I wrestled Tarana Rum Punch in Republic Missouri.  Since I was in the area I stopped in Springfield to see how Linda is doing.  She said that her experience, being kidnapped and almost dying and finding out that magic is real, helped her to be born again in the Christian faith.  Genuinely religiousContinue reading “Here I go again with the religious stuff”
