    Summary

    “Damn,” Eddie says loudly, exaggeratedly. “Out of matches again. How does this keep happening to me.”

    Behind him, as expected, he hears a muffled snicker, and the soft thud of an object hitting the wooden tabletop. 

    Man, Eddie thinks. This ghost must be dumb as a pile of rocks. 

    -

    In which Eddie Kaspbrak buys a lighthouse, falls in love, and finds his family.

    Summary

    Sonia Kaspbrak arrived at Finlay & Sons Funeral Home several hours before her son did. She came in a green nylon shroud with a zipper, in the back of Adrian's refrigerated van. Richie, who had taken the call from the next-of-kin and had therefore been saddled with her mortal remains and their committal into the earth, signed for her. "How's she's look?" he asked.

    Summary

    As soon as Eddie walks into the skate rink, he’s certain he’s made a mistake.

    This whole thing was his therapist’s idea — they’d been talking recently about how he felt like he’d missed out on too many experiences in his youth, and now he’s past thirty and has barely stepped outside his comfort zone, and his therapist suggested that he try one thing he’s always wanted to do but been too afraid to try. And since it’s November, and there’s snow on the ground outside, Eddie’s mind went to ice skating. His mother never let him learn when he was a kid, and so in a fit of overconfidence he signed up for the beginner’s class at the local rec center.

    The problem, Eddie’s realizing now as he approaches the desk to sign in and check out a pair of skates, is that all of the other beginner students in this class are about six years old.

    --

    Or, Eddie accidentally signs up for a children's ice skating class, and Richie is the instructor.

    Summary

    There are no monsters, mutants, or war. Robots do not stand as gladiators against the test of Man. Warriors do not drift together - close in thought and will and action.

    There’s just a hole in the desert. And it grows.
