From the Author: Please note that BOO HAG is a rather long-winded short story that was once given away to readers on my website. Much of the text within this download is now part of my novel ASCENSION : Ilsead. These characters are now much more flushed out and part of a much larger universe, existing within the ASCENSION series.That said, I do not recommend downloading this piece but rather the aforementioned novel instead (for a quite reasonable price, I assure you. At time of writing, it's free!) I am, however, leaving this short available on Amazon, should anyone be interested in seeing how the draft process went on this particular project. There are several differences and, perhaps, you might be inclined to see some of the scenarios and scenes that didn't make the cut. I dunno. But the bottom line is...I'm recommending that you pass on this unless you have read the ASCENSION series and are simply interested.Now then...carry on with the synopsis... October carries with it a chill that Benny Watt can't seem to shake. Ever since the Titantic sank, he's been burdened with thoughts of his own mortality. It keeps him up nights, in fact. Money and women are plentiful for Mr. Watt but, at 34, he can't help but feel that his life is missing something important: a family. He's certain that should he marry and have children, the nagging constant of his inevitable demise will be stifled. So, when he sets his mind upon a beautiful young girl named Edith, Benny feels his world finally bears merit. In a whirlwind romance, they marry. Benny has it all: political power, money, cars, a gorgeous, young wife, enemies that die gruesomely should they ever upset said wife...wait...what?
