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”


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”

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”

You might leave here should others take your place 

Before I met Stella I would have told you that necromancy is using magic for creating zombies.  You know how she felt about the “z” word.  The internet defines necromancy as “the supposed practice of communicating with the dead, especially in order to predict the future”.  Séances and stuff like that.  Why would dead people know the future? Continue reading “You might leave here should others take your place “

Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 3 “Don’t worry, we’re experts”

A bloodied and battered fellow listlessly swinging a baseball bat came galloping out from the general area where the Spark had crashed into the hospital lobby.  Grace responded to this threat with a little hop and kicked him in the chest – sending him to the ground gasping like someone having a heart attack.  GraceContinue reading “Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 3 “Don’t worry, we’re experts””

Magic Police – Episode 1 “The Thin Purple Line”

I don’t know what to do about the woman I will now start calling Raven Nightshade Blackmore Pandora Lilith.  While hilarious, that’s not even fair because she’s not gothy or emo despite being a grave robber.  I don’t know what she is.  As far as I can tell, the clothes on her back are herContinue reading “Magic Police – Episode 1 “The Thin Purple Line””

Ken Burns History of American Necromancy

I have no idea if any of this is true but this is what my graveyard friend told me.   At the tail end of the civil war, a man called Jedidiah Crane saw the way things were heading for the Confederacy.  He decided that the only way for the south to win was to callContinue reading “Ken Burns History of American Necromancy”

What does a necromancer order at Denny’s? Country-fried steak and eggs

Wasn’t there a plot on the Wire where one of the kids thought one of the drug dealers was a zombie master?  That show was based on a true story.  So the question – was the real guy who the character in the Wire was based on an actual necromancer?  Being a drug kingpin seemsContinue reading “What does a necromancer order at Denny’s? Country-fried steak and eggs”

Friendship is magic 3 – The Walking Dead Edition

I don’t know how many miles I’ve driven in the last two years but it’s a lot.  Tens of thousands.  You drive that much, you see some weird stuff going on with your fellow motorists.  After a while you don’t even notice it anymore.  You see a clown and an Easter bunny in a carContinue reading “Friendship is magic 3 – The Walking Dead Edition”
