Spirit Box
A Biggs & Myer Brief

The sweet taste of victory quickly sours for the Biggs and Myer team. Someone or something has broken into their office and destroyed everything but their safe room. What were they looking for? It’s hard to decipher from the ruins. The only clues the vandals leave behind are a crystal box and an envelope with a wax seal. It’s not long before the seemingly harmless items reveal their nefarious purpose, as secrets within the team are exposed.

Biggs and Myer enlist the aid of hunters and their Immortalem liaison, in an effort to put a face on this invisible foe. As they battle poltergeists and dark magic, a key to stopping what could be the equivalent to the apocalypse is brought to light. A power without a category in the Otherworld, and one of their own possesses it. Will they figure out who holds this power before it’s too late?

Minor Mischief

Everyone keeps telling little Patrick McPherson that his Nana Bee has gone to live with God. He knows it’s not true because he can still see her.  To prove it, he wakes her up -- right at the funeral.

Esperanza Morrison, her young children Hope and Joshua, and their pit bull Sugar are moving through a post-apocalyptic urban landscape, dodging Reborns—infected, half-dead victims of a deliberately created epidemic called the Morpheus Strain. The small family is at great risk: Mrs. Morrison’s husband, Grant, has “turned” and is one of the Reborns. Following his family obsessively and killing all in his path, the former Army Ranger is a huge potential threat to their safety. The family’s luck seems to change when they take shelter with a group of soldiers and scientists, but when the only female scientist Dr. Mays implants tracking nanites under Mrs. Morrison’s skin, the group’s true motives begin to surface. Does Dr. Mays really have the Morrison Family’s best interests at heart? It is discovered that Mrs. Morrison has been bitten too, and has enhanced senses that fascinate the scientists. Mrs. Morrison is a fighter and by the climax of the story, she will need to take heroic action once again.

E.M. Lacey’s tense, fast-paced novella graphically depicts a group of tough multiracial survivors trying to find a safe place in a disturbing new world.
