    Summary

    Alison picked up the book from the looming shelf and turned it over, eyes skimming the bold and engraved letters on the hard sleeve cover. The book read 'Captain Benjamin Coldwell'. She felt the world freeze as it dawned on her who exactly the book may be about.

     

    In which Alison is rummaging through the library and finds a book that's about the Captain's life.

    Cue the other ghosts and herself reading it, crying their eyes out and the Captain being oblivious to it all.

    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. And then there is Patrick Butcher, who is possibly the most surprising part of the whole thing.

    Summary

    "[The Captain] fiddled with his tie as he walked down the corridor, but was stopped in his tracks by a sudden wailing cry. He smirked briefly, unable to suppress his amusement at the thought of Julian and his houseguests, before carrying on down the main staircase, and out into the gardens.

    He’d made the right decision in switching rooms last night, clearly. He had no doubt that Michael’s parents would have provided enough of a disturbance to have made sleep a moot point. And, if nothing else, at least he didn’t have to worry about Thomas phasing through him in the middle of the night.

    At that thought, the Captain abruptly came to a halt. He placed his swagger-stick under his arm and drew in a tremulous breath.

    Nothing about Thomas had been incorporeal last night. Nothing whatsoever. The memory of his solidity, of the weight of his body, of the sheer warmth of that contact—".

    Displaced from his bedroom over the Christmas period, the Captain is forced to make new sleeping arrangements.

    Summary

    Being a historian that can see ghosts is not always the advantage you might think; they always know more than you do, they are impossible to cite as sources and no one tells you at 18, when you’re picking your degree, that if you get hit by a car in your thirties you might wake up in hospital with history staring back at you.
