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.

The Alien's Bunghole (WT 21)

New Title: The Alien's Bunghole
Old Title: Ecstasy of Gold
Original Title: Mungo McNevin and the Priests Hole

Two college students encounter an alien device in a pub. The device does strange things to them. And in the end, "Slade ... shuffled the decks and daydreamed of two moons drifting over the ocean of dreams and herds of dreezik roaming the inner plains of his home world in the constellation of Ophiuchus. In a few hours, he would walk on his home world once again."

This story started out life way back in 2007 and I've been cannibalizing the chapters that never seemed to work together. The segments were:
1) On my website in February 2009's "I Fought The Spaceship and the Spaceship Won."
2) "Rannoch Abbey and the Night Visitor" in the anthology: MONK PUNK due out in May of 2011.
3) And the final part I can extract is this story - The Alien's Bunghole.
