Weekend Writing Warriors – Orpheus and the Camera Man 5

Welcome friends, followers, and Weekend Writing Warriors!

I’m still sharing snippets from my my modern fantasy short, Orpheus and the Cameraman. Tony has asked Marshall to be his guide into the underworld to fetch back Tony’s dead girlfriend, and Marshall has his own reason for wanting to go…


Snippet 1 Snippet 2 Snippet 3 Snippet 4

One week after they got back to campus, Tony knocked on Marshall’s door, bringing research.

“This is everything we’ll need,” he said. “Most of it is from a Greek monk I found in Caledonia, but I’ve checked it out as much as I could with second opinions. I trust him, I believe he’s done his part, and he’ll come through for us if you do.”

“And he said that I’m somebody who can lead the way into Hades’ underworld?”

“Yeah. I gave him a token of you.”  Tony tossed a black lens cap into the air, and Marshall caught it, growling.  “You ready with your psi-camera stuff?”
