Snippet 1

Tony leaned over and fixed Marshall with a hard stare. “Why didn’t you ever tell me you had a high psi rating?”

“Well . . . I haven’t known for long, never learned to do much with it, and it hasn’t exactly come up in conversation, man. Why is it coming up in conversation now?”

“The Roads to the Afterlife, man! I’ve been consulting holy men, trying to find out what happened to Felicity. She’s stuck in the Greek underworld, possibly an attendant of Hades’ court, and they bargain with mortals, sometimes. You’ve read the story of Orpheus, right?”

Marshall Frey looked up from his humanities essay notes to see Tony Santoro standing on the other side of the university library table.  “Hey, bud.  How’re you doing?”  Tony just shrugged.  “It was–well, it was an interesting funeral service.”

Tony laughed bitterly as he sat down, and a few images flashed through Marshall’s mind of the Celtic wake for Felicity.  Marshall met Felicity in high school, and they’d been friends for most of that time; hooked up once, but decided that really wasn’t a good idea.  Felicity had only met Tony a few months before she found out she had inoperable cancer.

“I don’t see why they gave her Last Rites with that foul Irish Trickster,” Tony said after a moment.
