He didn’t know if he could call what he felt fear anymore. On the bad days, the very bad days, he just wished it were all over. On the better days, he longed for time to extend, to stretch out before him in the same unceasing road he’d glimpsed in his youth but hadn’t known how to appreciate.

A dying man, an artist, spends his final days in an old lighthouse on one of the Great Lakes. The lighthouse is haunted by a sea captain whose makes an uneasy peace with his unwanted house guest. (view spoi

After the Storm is totally unexpected and equally delightful. For those that didn’t read this offering first in the anthology, you’ll definitely want to get it now. The great characters, descriptive writing, clever ending, and above all really wonderful ambiance create an unforgettable story with a great twist. This story just solidifies Munder on my must-read book list.

The prologue begins with a creepy story told around the campfire. The storyteller is telling a scary tale about the lightho

Not quite a ghostly tale (or is it?), After the Storm haunts you. Beautifully written, the friendship and understanding between Vince and the Captain captivates. Vincent's illness is real and his struggles with it gripping, but not so much that the reader is completely focused on that part of the story. It's in his efforts to die his way, if not with dignity, then with freedom. The Captain's tale is no less riveting; its resolution emotive.

I will be thinking of this story for days to come, if n

Not my usual sort of story to read, but it wasn't bad at all. I actually got into it after a while and ended up really enjoying it. I do like the supernatural little twists in my stories :)

A terminally ill man, a lighthouse, and a ghost. Nicely written short story/novella, with an evocative setting and an interesting main character.
