Hal’s freed himself from the retail grind, and acquired the stereo system of his dreams. Now he’ll get back at everyone who ever doubted his audiophonic genius, especially Kathy. He’s going to play the one hit by the rarest, hippest band in America on his podcast, to conjure up ancient vibrations. It’s a listening experience that could rock your face off.

A Haunting Beyond The Lake
England, late 1990s – He has been in love with Lucy for as long as he can remember, and now might be the last time to tell her. Yet as he talks to her at the lake, a shadow starts to take shape on the other side. Is it a trick of the light, a ghost or something else? Something that’s been waiting for him for a long time.
