This short story is about something that occurred a time long ago. It provides beginning information from the soon to be published in-color novella - The Realm. It and other short stories are a continuation of the first book - Mana in the Modern World. All are short stories about Mana's (magic energy) return and potential costs. The various short stories 'connect' in one way or another.


The Realm will be an illustrated; in-color novella about a group of D&D gamers and medieval re-enactors who inadvertently find themselves in another… place. It's a world in which the gods, demigods, and creatures of mythology still reign supreme. There, they learn of the much, much more dangerous sort of undead, the intelligent Zombie, more aptly known as a "Ghoul." So yes, the group finds it to be fun, quite thrilling and…most certainly dangerous.


So, step with me into a modern world, one where true magical energy (Mana) has returned. The return of Mana allows those with a certain type of mind to utilize the energy to perform true magic and actual healing. But, there is a most wicked catch….

Only a few, a very - very few can use this energy and not all of those are necessarily sane or remain so.

Many without the magic ability are fearful, resentful, bitter, or worse--a few are dangerous.
