Professor Lawrence Miller lost his son Val to a drug overdose. Overwhelmed by grief, he could sense his son's distress as he called out from beyond the grave. Recklessly, Miller followed his son into the afterlife. After great turmoil and with the help of Franco, his long-deceased father, Lawrence and Val are reunited. Now they wander the "Seam," that ever-shifting place between this world and whatever comes next, choosing to spend their eternity helping other souls. THIS ISSUE: "Déjà vu à Jaffa" The assault of Jaffa repeats itself again and again, as if it were a record skipping, playing a single measure or two without ceasing. Like a marionette, a French soldier must dance to this ghastly tune, reliving each cannon shot, each assault, each act of brutality. Whether he likes it or not, Prof. Lawrence Miller has now joined this danse macabre. Can The Shepherd's light make the music change its tempo and reveal the rest of the verse?
