Daniel, the secular occultist, debunks most paranormal occurrences we throw at him because he is anhedonic/harps on the fact that subjective reality doesn't equate to objective dangers. Thomm callously claims the paranormal is like child abuse. We discuss methods to create ghosts, none of which involve messy murders. Amber doesn't think she should have to prepare for a show on the paranormal because she is married to Thomm. Daniel considers this cheating. Amber believes she is psychic when it results in girls landing in her arms, because she remembers her successes. Thomm saw the Great Hudson Valley UFO when he was too young to be a reliable witness. We briefly visit Intolerance Corner, which we hope won't become a regular feature. Thomm poked a ghost when he was sixteen and horrible, but it was likely infrasound and faulty senses.
Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
