THE INSCRIPTION OF EVIL TIMES by Mike Ricksecker

Inscription  Mr. Ricksecker tells us he is a ‘ghostorian’.   What is that, you may well ask.  He says

A Ghostorian is one who researches and investigates a ghost and the place in which it haunts.

Ok, fair enough.   So this ‘case file’ is a story,  a ghost story of sorts,  told through means of some journal entries of a mysterious Dr. Patrick, some journal entries of a bereaved husband writing in 1867, and the case notes of the Ghostorian himself.

In digging a grave for the deceased wife, the mourners come across a strange tablet, age and provenance unknown, warning of evil times.  It says, in part:

We have fallen upon evil times and the world has waxed very old and wicked.

Since this is a short story, I am not going to tell you anymore of the plot.   You will have to read it for yourself.

Just a side note :  in my Kindle edition, a number of random words throughout the text are in bold .  They seem to make a sentence.   See if you have the same  thing.

Spooky.   Damned spooky.
