Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Ed returns to writing after leading a very busy life. He’s been a Navy diver specializing in bomb disarmament, a reporter, an intelligence specialist, and a marketing executive. The list is surely not exhaustive. And he’s traveled to just about everywhere in the world.
“A Laughing Matter” introduces Alan, who is caring for his bedridden wife in her last days. He receives a visitation from Mort, whom only Alan seems to be able to see or hear.
Mort provides a somewhat unusual lesson in the meaning of life. Alan doesn’t like being told what he’s already been thinking subconsciously, and he overreacts. But he comes around in the end; there’s always something new and interesting.
Edward Ahern’s bio sketch can be found here.
Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Ed. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
