I doubt that Zeus ever guessed it might come to this, gifted with foresight though he be. Worsted by his own art, or so he would have it, but he fashions the world to his liking alone and how else should he feel when his creations grow according to their will rather than his own? Jealousy? Pride? Yes, and in measure to befit the God of Gods.

Shayla is nineteen. And dead. Very dead. And there's one small problem with that: she doesn't have a clue where she now finds herself. Oh sure, it looks pretty fantastic - trees, fields, hedgerows and stuff as far as the eye can see - but that in itself doesn't answer anything, especially since no one has turned up to greet her...yet...

So how did I come to this? Oh, I doubt it not: you will have heard the manner of my death, handed down to you second or perhaps even third hand, each retelling receiving just that little extra embellishment, another grain of shock to add spice to the feast. Very possibly if I know the tongues that wag in this parish. But whatever you heard, be assured you know less than the half of it.

A ghost story set in one of the most unlikely places in Denmark, in a rural setting of such beauty as to belie its history. The ghost, the locals will tell you, is still there...

No one suspected, did they. Maybe we’d just gotten too caught up in our own sense of goodwill to wonder. Let’s face it, where famine stalks, death’s just a few steps behind, the oldest and the weakest the first losers, but where were the bodies?

The time is the mid-1920s, the place a windswept and rain-lashed railway line traversing the bleak moorlands of northern England. It starts with a train crash. And it will never end...

Only by stepping outside of yourself can you hope to understand yourself. Only by stepping outside of life can you begin to understand life. I tried to do both. I rolled up my portion of Space and Time, and as I stood naked in the middle of nowhere and nowhen, I started to think. And that is why I’m here.
Here Ch'i Gathers

There was wealth here, he could feel it. Wealth they could tap, wealth they could liberate. They felt no qualms about what they did: most profit is earned on the sweat of another, most is undeserved. Most is then simply being returned to where it belonged. Not stealing, more a repositioning of resources. Another sanitising label. They had learned well from their political masters.

The time shall come when no Phillipson will own an inch of land. And while stand the walls of your fine new house, we will haunt it night and day. You will never be rid of us! NEVER!’

Smashwords book reviews by David P. Elvar

  • The Favour on Oct. 27, 2014

    A nicely written story. Masterful use of language. I have the feeling, though, that it could have been developed a little further. This is not by way of a criticism but rather acknowledgement that there is much unexplored potential in the basic idea. I look forward to reading more by this author.
  • Consciousness Beyond the Body: Evidence and Reflections on Feb. 07, 2016

    An excellent and intelligent treatise on the subject of OBEs. Thoroughly recommended.
