THE MACABRE MANSION ANNOUNCES "MANSION MUSE" A ONGOING SERIES OF ARTICLES ABOUT SELF PUBLISHING STARTING THIS MONTH!
I, Your Ghoulish GraveYard Host , will be taking you to your seat for this showing of "What Took Place In This Town And Where Are All The People?"
The doctors had remained silent. They did not have to remind each other about how they had agreed not to say another word about what did happen in that room. Not a word was said when they had met in private consulation about a patient. Nor was anything said in a group meeting of medical specialists from other fields, for which they were all gathered together and then put in a conference room, who were there to discuss the treatment of this now deceased woman and how to treat any other patient who might be exhibiting similar symptoms.
When the two doctors, each man had drawn the short straw, had walked onto the floor to begin the overnight shift--they had called it the who would be dead by morning tour--the first thing they did was to review the charts kept on the first patient in a room that had been shared by two other men with the same medical condition.
They hid behind medical charts and the case history of the other patients that they had been asked to read and might then be called upon to provide a new medical opinion on how to treat the life threatening illness that was killing them. "Use them to avoid getting spotted by the reporters of third rate rag newspapers who were hiding behind a vase filled with flowers or a newspaper bought in the gift shop," the custodian said, holding of box of light bulbs. "This breed of vermin is here to get you to say something that will be printed in a rag paper read by fat women and guys who are one beer can away from having no brain cells left.
"Do you know how crazy you sound," the second doctor said. "Even if there are any people like the ones you have-"
"They are very real," the custodian said."You can find them pushing a shopping cart filled with the store brand boxes of cereal, frozen food and beer if they have a husband and live in Florida."
"The people you have described," the second doctor said. "They all can't be that stupid. Can they?"
"They believe the headlines about aliens having babies with earth women," the custodian said. "And look at the pictures of a ghost haunting a Texas family and of Bigfoot on a rural highway in Georgia."
"They sound stupid," the first doctor said. "And worse than crazy for thinking that all of that printed garbage is real."
"Talk like that," the custodian said. "And one of the rag newspapers will get it twisted into half truths that will be linked to your name and the name of this hospital where the ghost has been seen in different places that are familiar to it."
This is just a small inkling of some of the tales that are dancing around in the regions of my brain that is not in rem sleep nor is in a fully awake state. I hope you like what I can bring out of there.
This is where a series of articles of self published will be located.
I, Your Ghoulish GraveYard Host , will be taking you to your seat for this showing of a short film that has been given the name of "What Took Place In This Town And Where Are All The People?"
But before I do that, I would like to introduce you to a man who knew how to market movies using his own sense of humor when Vincent Price was making "The House On Haunted Hill" for him.
We are now at your seat and here is your free popcorn and your free cup of soda. So enjoy the film and, for the last time....
Let me remind you that once the movie starts .... the doors of this theatre will be locked from the outside and no amount of crying and steady screaming will bring anyone to help you.
You have been .... warned!
Now On With Tonight's Feature Film!
The Editor's Desk:
I have been working late into this dark and cold night, with a few ghosts and goblins swirling somewhere in and around this desk where I have been hard at work on this issue, choosing to give a thumbs up or a thumbs down as to what will be making the final cut [with very little ink or .... blood ... getting spilled on my old stone floor.] and be included in this, the very first issue of this newsletter, and in all of the other issues that will be following it.
It does not matter what road you have taken to arrive here, you are now here and I will be going to great lengths - some might say I have gone to far, but I don't agree with them - to provide you with information on a wide range of subjects and when I've come back from looking into some of the darker nooks and crannies of the internet, I will have something dark and interesting for you to read and even play with.
