I had to search around the web to satisfy that hunger, and managed to find only a few more stories of their antics. In one, they broke up the wedding of a serial killer. In another, they dealt with a shape-shifter. However I felt certain I was missing more than I could locate.
And with the release by Wolfsinger Publications of "Necromantic Shenanigans," written by the team of Julie Campbell and Becky Kyle, that belief was confirmed. The stories in this collection make one privy to the adventures of cousins Hagatha and Elise Macrow, together with their friends (some of whom are definitely not of this world), from the time they moved into their Rocky Mountain retreats until they become significant parts of a super security organization. Along the way I found my old favorite exploits, and many others that I had not encountered previously.
It's a great read -- and while I've been a devotee of hard SF for more than 65 years, until very recently the fantasy genre hadn't been very high on my list of reading preferences. A dragon tale now and then was fine, but running into Medusa right alongside Dracula usually unsuspended my disbelief and caused me to move to another story. This book, on the other hand, made me hang right in there to see what other unbelievable event would transpire next.
My only complaint, and it's relatively minor, was the absence of a usable table of contents in the e-book copy that I bought. Since this is a collection of short stories, most of which had appeared in print before but in various publications, a TOC would help greatly in skipping over parts you've already read. Fortunately, they've undergone enough modification in the process of unifying the collection that you really ought not skip anything anyway!
The bottom line: 4.99 stars out of 5, and I eagerly await any possible sequel. These two definitely deserve a series -- as do their authors.
