And the Life of the World to Come (WT 34)
"Et vitam venturi saeculi," a Latin phrase at the end of the profession of faith. But do we believe in "a life in the world to come"? Do we have faith? They believed. They devised a resurrection and then they died in the apocalypse. This is the story of their life and the world to come.
Published in "Adventures in Other Worlds" an anthology edited by Chris Bartholomew.
Available at Static Movement's Bookstore
And for slightly more at Amazon: Adventures in Other Worlds
The original title: Detective Stuff and the story started out life as a writing exercise for Evil Editors Blog in 2007. It was a biography of EE and it was biting, wicked satire. I wrote a flash fiction from it called it "Inspector Weannous of the Detective Squad" and had the basic plot of an old detective trains a rookie.
In December 2010, I used Willie Weannous as a character in an erotic story. But I didn't use any other part of this story. I changed the character's name for this story.
In March of 2011, I wrote "Et Exspecto Resurrectionem Mortuorum (WT 90)" and that theme had more story to it. So this is the story I wrote from that phrase.
