Everson Croft here, professor of mythology and behind-the-scenes wizard.

Show me an amateur conjurer, and I’ll stop him before he gets himself killed.

That’s the idea, anyway. But New York City isn’t what it used to be, and I don’t mean the recent crash.

Amateur casters are calling up creatures they shouldn’t be able to. And there’s been a murder at the city’s most hallowed cathedral, a message in blood on the victim’s back the NYPD wants me to interpret, like yesterday.

Something tells me I’m in over my head. And that’s not just Chinatown’s newest mob boss, a scary-powerful vampire, or my possessed cat talking.

No matter how much magic I hurl, worse keeps chasing bad, and I’m amassing enemies like they’re aluminum cans.

Did I mention the end of the world might be nigh?

Damn. Maybe I’m the amateur here.

Our journey through life rarely follows a straight and narrow path. The road is filled with unexpected twists and turns and sometimes things are not as they seem. In The Twisted Road Ahead, John D.

In “Tormented Heart” Austin Drummond discovers that fulfilling his departed wife’s final request is more than he ever bargained for.

When tragedy strikes, Blake Thomas is left with a broken heart and a guilty conscience. Rather than searching within his heart for the forgiveness he needs, he decides that sometimes it’s easier to just “Blame it on the Weather.”

In “One Shot to the Head,”* Brie’s longtime boyfriend takes her for a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day, so she naturally assumes that he will at long last propose to her. What she doesn’t expect is an evening that ends in humiliation.

Diana is having a difficult time coming to grips with the loss of her only child. If that isn’t enough of a burden, “Disturbing Conversations” are leading her to believe she’s losing her mind.

In “Words to a Kill,”* Lucy’s erratic post-accident behavior troubles her husband Sonny. When his brother Marco makes an unorthodox suggestion to help Lucy, can Sonny stand by and handle the alarming result?

“A Toast to My Sorry Life” finds Lena Dancer coming to the sad realization that her life is nothing like she thought it would be. Sometimes when dreams vanish into thin air, the only thing that remains is a desire for cold, hard revenge.

Christmas Traditions Are Rough

I was absolutely thrilled when my neighbor delivered her plate of Christmas cookies to us last night. Her chocolate chip cookies are very well known, and people would poke you in the eye to get one. They have even sold at school auctions for over a hundred dollars for a cookie jar of them. Unfortunately everyone was home when they were delivered, so they know they are in the house. If no one knows they were given to us, I usually hide them and eat them all myself. I would feel bad, but I don’t. I just don’t. It’s gonna turn into Mad Max, Beyond Thunder Dome in this house until those cookies are all eaten. It’s almost a Christmas tradition.

If you want something hidden, consider hiding it in plain sight. Unfortunately, stumbling across such a something came close to getting Nathan fired.

An innocent when it came to the discovery, to be sure, but it would nevertheless be fair to say that Nathan wasn’t entirely blameless in the matter, having run roughshod over all manner of military regulations.

Despite the repeated screw-ups, Nathan remains an asset to the auditing firm, Mace Forensics. So, in a last ditch effort to keep him out of trouble, the firm banishes Nathan to a relic of the Cold War, a third-rate air base situated somewhere in the Nevada desert.

Nathan is a forensic accountant, and he is to audit said base until every pencil, and every paperclip has been entered into the ledger.

There he will be safely out of sight, and out of mind.

Welcome to Area Zero, Nathan.
