Hello, I am Robert G. Male. Welcome to WraithStop™. Here you will find links that I think are of interest. Furthermore these are links that I want to keep track of because they have given me either ideas or some other form of inspiration for my writing. Links are listed in order lowest to highest both in the date they are given and the order in which they appear (meaning: read them from the bottom up for a certain day's list).

3) Police find icon's casket, more empty plots at historic cemetery
  • This is all very reminiscent of Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Such criminal activity is heinous and the dead deserve better. This tale of greed and disrespect won't have a fitting gruesome end like the justice of horror movies (though of course Chain Saw Massacre doesn't fit that mould anyway). Consider this more a news item, than a focus of writerly interest, though of course such desecration and retribution does conjure up plot ideas.

  • 2) Zombie Subdivisions - The Living Dead of the Real Estate Market
    • While this is not as zombie centric as you might be led to believe, and really the whole thing is misnamed, this article still perked curiosity and started of a volley of thoughts and impressions. Think about it, whole neighbourhoods empty like ghost towns. While there is a certain strength to find a ghost town full of furnished house, meals left uneaten, and all the assorted images that go with such places, what about places yet to fulfil their potential, echoes of things not yet happened, maybe never to happen. Real economic concerns aside, why might a fictional zombie subdivision have arisen? Something to run with.

  • 1) Russian Scientist: UFO Crashed Into Meteorite to Save Earth
    • Wow, where to start with this one? Perhaps it should first be noted this made it on Fox News even if only an article online. Those were some friendly, and likely technologically in-advanced aliens. That they had to sacrifice their ship to stop a meteorite doesn't sound too smart. Maybe there have been too many movies and mini-series about dangerous meteorites where good old explosives do the job and people watch the sky for dangerous space rocks. Then again, there really are scientists tracking anything that might pose a threat to Earth. Consider though, more retro UFOs of origins other than interstellar.
