Thumbnail for The Merry Go Round

The Merry Go Round by Ray Johnson...

The town is small, so the carnival that comes every year is usually small, with a small Ferris wheel and a small merry-go-round. But this year’s carnival has a huge merry-go-round, with six horses in a row, rather than three. The merry-go-round looks brand new, with immaculate fixtures: Flawless horses, some rearing, others snorting, still other racing with flying manes. The brass is polished and the mirrors are sparkling clean. Every child, and many young people, want to ride on the fabulous merry-go-round. People, young and old, buy tickets and get in line to get on the merry go round…never knowing that none of them will ever get off….

Who is this fellow alumni who feels that twenty years was not too long to wait for retribution? Even more important, who would be next?

Thumbnail for The Devil's Lighthouse

The Devil's Lighthouse by Ray Johnson...

The Devil’s Tower, a slender rock column soared 175 feet above the angry Norwegian Sea. On top of the Devil’s Tower was the Devil’s Lighthouse. The names for the tower and lighthouse were bestowed with good reason. The ghost who haunted the lighthouse was grappling with the light keeper who was fighting for his life, wrestling with an opponent that he could not even see. The battle raged on the narrow walkway that surrounded the rotating light. The ghost, as always, won the life and death battle and flung the lightkeeper over the railing, his body crashing on the craggy rocks 175 feet below. Aaron Jurgen, assuming the ghost stories were nothing more than campfire tales, purchased the rock column and the lighthouse. No one bothered to tell him that the Devil still owned both.

Thumbnail for Vermillion Vampire

Vermillion Vampire by Ray Johnson...

Ginger St. Johns had three enviable qualities: she was beautiful, with a shape like a super model, she was incredibly intelligent and she was a true redhead. One of those qualities was in high demand worldwide. She had moved out of Jud’s condo, ostensibly to save his life. Her current boyfriend was not only a bad lover, but as exciting as a chess match on Monday night in Slovenia. He had a conniption when she told him she was going on a cruise to the Mediterranean on a two hundred and fifty million dollar world-class yacht. She was too smart to leave on a cruise with a seventy year old Indonesian billionaire or a hyper rich older Japanese businessman. But the owner of the yacht was Italian, thirty-five, nouveau riche, and four other women were also going on the cruise. She reasoned, “What could possibly go wrong?”

Murder At The Changjai Lamasery by Ray Johnson...

Gold, the shiny metal that glistens in streams and mines, has the ability to turn honest men into thieves, to turn dedicated Generals into murderers.

Only gold could widen the gap in the lifestyles of the two men. The General was willing to do whatever it took to get his hands on the gold, including murder.

Blood Of The Gypsy by Ray Johnson...

If a tree falls in the forest, and no one sees or hears it, does it really happen. If a werewolf kills a gang lieutenant in a dark alley in Los Angeles, and no one sees the killing, does it actually happen. The tree is real, but a werewolf is nothing more than legend. The throat being ripped out, the blood, the gore, the fang and claw marks, cannot be real because no one saw the killing. After satiating the need for blood, the werewolf slipped silently into the black of night, secure in the knowledge that no one would believe what their eyes were telling them. Werewolves were only imaginary.

Person of Interest by Ray Johnson...

The vast majority of men who sexually abuse women are apprehended by law enforcement, convicted and sentenced to some type of incarceration. These abusers are usually taken into custody rather easily because they leave clues, DNA and other physical evidence at the scene of the crime. Some are arrested because of video surveillance cameras. What would be the outcome if the abuser was extremely clever and left no evidence whatsoever?

Thumbnail for Consequences

Consequences by Ray Johnson...

Zack is driving his new Ford Mustang in fog so thick that he can’t see the road, where no fog should even exist. His odometer as well as his GPS have stopped working, on a new car. The pavement ends and he’s driving on a dirt road, when his map shows pavement. The gas gage, which should read three-quarters full, displays almost empty. The spectral fog is so thick that he unwittingly takes the left fork in the road, having no idea where he’s headed or what awaits. There are no other cars on this ethereal road, heightening his disorientation. His options are limited: continue on, hoping to find help, or wait out the mysterious fog; that might never lift. Someone, or something, is controlling his destiny.
