THE THIRD TIMES THE CHARM!
THROUGH THE DRINKING GLASS
ISBN 1-890096-19-9, $14 US
Follow the rainbow to its end and you will discover a place where magic is as real as hope and legends dwell.
For the troubled, it is a place to find those who will help them in beating back the darkness.
For those lucky enough to find it, their lives will never again be the same.
The name of the place is Bulfinches Pub. These are their stories.
This is Murphys Lore.
The gang from Bulfinches Pub is back in this new collection in which a hitman attempts to cheat the devil; a knight tries to save a dragon in the sewers under NYC; Death witnesses a murder so foul that even he cannot allow the killer to go free; a gothic princess stalks vampyre Lucas Wilson; two teams face off in the bar hockey semifinals; Uncle Sam is found to be real & running a not so secret government agency; Coyote answers a prayer & takes on a con man; Hex confronts a serial body snatcher as Guardian Angels try to capture the renegade seraph Mathew & his succubus wife Ryth; Nemesis reveals why Zeus has fled the mortal plane & we learn why vegetarians go hungry in Bulfinches Pub on Arbor Day; the Devil tries to take his revenge on Paddy Moran and friends; & Paddy finds the ultimate billboard-the Moon.
