The Last Great Reaper

"The Last Great Reaper" by Billi Bell

In 1820 Death resides in London, where else would she live? During the reaping of a pope, she meets a man who can see her. The problem? He's not dead or dying. As she tries to figure out who he is, a lost soul requires her attention, and she soon discovers that her mystery man is not who he seems. Their stories intersect, and she soon finds herself battling an old enemy.  Death is an entity created by the universe to keep a balance between life and death in humans. She considers herself an outsider and rarely interferes with the lives of a human before their death. As the leader of the Four Horsemen, she commands a large number of reapers and will not hesitate to punish whoever steps out of line. Dominic Fratelli has been a priest in the Vatican for only a few short years, and he maneuvers the holy grounds as inconspicuous as possible. It is on one fateful night that his entire world is turned upside down and his biggest secret is revealed. He soon finds himself learning the truth of his origin and wishing he'd never met Death.

The Vagabond King

"The Vagabond King: A Coming of Age Story" by James Campion Conway

When his mother dies and he discovers the man he believed was his father is not, sixteen year old Chris is haunted by a mysterious apparition that forces him to question his pampered existence and embark upon a quest to find himself. Hoping she will “make a man of him”, he seeks sanctuary in the home of Magda, a middle aged waitress with a penchant for sex, only to discover she lives with her father, a cigarette smoking, beer swilling immigrant. Chris hates his shabby new surroundings at the end of the street and the shabby old man at the end of his life who spends his days listening to old blues records and making Chris fetch him fresh cans of beer. But, when the old man tells tales of Communist Hungary, torture, escape and the mysterious medallion he wears, Chris learns that, like the old man’s skipping records, history repeats itself and the roles we play have been played many times before.
