Finally. It's October.
I love everything about October. The scary movies, the Halloween decorations, the first hint of chill in the air. The falling leaves. The sight of my lawn mowers sitting idle in the corner of the garage.
Yes, it's my favorite time of the year.

In honor of October, I'd like give you a free audio story that I think fits the spooky mood perfectly. By following the link below, you can listen to me reading my short story 'The Knocking Man.'
It's a half hour long, so settle back, grab something to drink, and hit the play button. I hope you like it.
For next week, I hope to have some new ghostly EVPs for you to listen to. I'll be taking my gear out to various cemeteries in hopes of capturing voices that are hard to explain.
Until then, enjoy The Knocking Man.
I've also added some new lighting features to my steampunk ghostbuster's proton-aether pack. The pictures are below. I plan to wear this somewhere, for Halloween, despite the sad fact that the things weighs as much as a brand new Chevy Volt.
Here it is, propped against my workshop wall, in dim light:
The shot below was taken in the dark, with all the lights set for always on -- they can also flash, which is the setting I'll use for some of them.
I'm pretty happy with it, especially since it's made from junk plumbing parts, an old motorcycle clutch, and the guts of a vacuum cleaner.
See you next Sunday! And remember, if you want to leave a review for WAY OUT WEST, it's only a click away...
