New Halloween Fiction: Worst Afterlife Ever

I thought I had a good survival plan.

It seemed like such a good idea. Head out of the deathtrap dense urban Philadelphia at the first word of zombies in New York. Head into the mountains around the Shenandoah Valley, but head to the depopulated Centralia area instead of someone’s over-priced AirBnB property.

There were shrines in the area that had basic tourist amenities like bathrooms, so I could fill up with water. There were abandoned buildings for shelter. Yet it had almost no one living there because of the evacuation. Because of the fire hazard, no one else would go there.

An Interview with Author Kevin Rush

“It’s my opinion that if you look at the world around you, you have the choice to either be dispirited or inspired. If you’re looking for inspiration, it’s there in abundance.”

Kevin Rush is a busy Catholic author. While many of his works are coming of age novels set in the 1970s, he’s also written science fiction and horror.

Sadly, the Risks of COVID Are Unavoidable

As we all know, President Trump has tested positive for, and has been hospitalized with, COVID-19. As I write this, he appears to have responded well to treatment, and has been released from the hospital.

You can judge for yourself the snickering delight of the chattering media, and some Democrats, at his positive test, and those of other GOP politicians. This is perhaps understandable, although those who are actively pulling for their death are behaving in a very ugly manner.

But rather than dwelling on that, I am writing about how versions of what we have seen with the President, his staff, and others around them are being re-enacted across the country in schools and in businesses.
