Kung Fu Vs. a zombifying plague
"Haunting and Emotional. If Ghost Rider were a cowboy, this would be his backstory."
For a man who has the courage to look life in the teeth, everything is black and white. J.T. McCutchen has made a living by this philosophy. So far it's served him well.
Busted down From Texas Ranger to private security for an oil company in a muddy boomtown, McCutchen is holding his life together via discipline and sheer will. But attempts on his father's life combined with a plague ravaging the countryside threaten to open a closet full of bones. Now the ex-ranger's about to learn, when you've seen things that won't let you live, it's either you or the bones.
"Originally published as part of a serial entitled, Reefer Ranger Rides Again, the short story McCutchen’s Bones appeared in a pared down manner, names and places altered to avoid undue scrutiny from the powers it laid bare. What you have before you is the unabridged version. Consider yourself forewarned, the contents of this horrifying and heroic tale are as volatile as a truckload of nitro-torpedoes en route to the oil fields described within!" ~ Professor Jim Buckner, Geology Dept.; University of Texicas
"A more efficient beauty amidst mud-encrusted gore can't be found."
Letter from the Editor:
The Truth in History Society (THS), commonly known as lost file conspiracists, have beat their drum for nearly a dozen years. I, like most, ignored them. Unlike most, I was kidnapped. While initially ticked off by this, not getting exploded (another story altogether) ultimately balanced the scales.
Since then I have rigorously set about curating and editing all known Lost DMB Files while maintaining as scientific of an approach to these pulpy stories as possible. Now I count myself among the zealous believers in their authenticity, not simply as pulp fiction, but as journalistic tales preserving historic fact.
My promise to the reader is to seek out these Lost DMB files and present them to you unabridged and unaltered from their original intent for as long as I am able. I also vow to do my best to allow you to draw your own conclusions as to their historical value and contemporary commentary. (I’ll refrain from my preachy tendencies as best I can!)
Finally, be forewarned. Becoming lost in these “lost files” and the world they reconstruct is difficult to resist. May what once was lost be found.
Professor Jim “Buck” Buckner
