Maxx Fragg, VPI - The ghost of crisis past

Hey all! Welcome back to another Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve participated but I wanted to make sure I snuck one more in before the end of the year. I’ve been busy working with a new comic book company, American Mythology, and we’re getting ready to launch some fantastic new titles coming this April starting out with Stargate: Atlantis  Season Six and brand new The Three Stooges adventures, some of which to be written by yours truly. Hopefully you’ll check them out. Enjoy this week’s contribution from my latest novel, Maxx Fragg, VPI, and before you’re done – stop over at the main site and enjoy all of this week’s offerings by clicking SCIFIFANSAT
Two steps from the kitchen and a blue blur shot over Maxx, knocking him back into the living room. The creature floated above the frightened couple, holding a long silver butcher knife and wearing one of Debbie’s cooking aprons.
Travis slipped Debbie’s hold and tumbled over the back of the sofa.  
Maxx focused on the knife. They never added props to their ghost because it only cheapened the effect and the cooking apron was way over the top.
Tane stumbled out of the kitchen and saw their wayward spirit.
“Why is our creature from beyond wearing a cooking-”
“Look out!”
Something hit Maxx from the side and he tumbled to the floor. He spun around, looking for Tane, but no one was there. Maxx noticed the knife handle sticking out of the wall, the blade embedded in the plaster.
“Jason?” Maxx asked.
Maxx knew that voice. It was Jason. But how? His brother died six months ago.

And there you have it. Thanks for reading and if you’d like to pick up your own copy of Maxx Fragg, VPI – you can find it on Amazon in eBook or print. We’re running a Kickstarter for the next couple days for the upcoming Stargate: Atlantis launch and there’s still time to contribute – here’s the link if you’re interested - Kickstarter - Stargate: Atlantis . I hope you enjoyed this week’s snippet and I’m hoping you and yours have a great holiday season! See you in 2016!


  1. Oops - it seems that Maxx's trickery might be coming home to roost. This is good - I like it!

  2. A deeper mystery than the spook - Is it his brother's ghost and why is it throwing a knife at him?
