A rogue archivist and legal consultant, during my career I represented many plaintiffs in suits to halt harassment by supernatural entities. I advised the federal commission that codified the rights of both the spirit and the host in possession cases. My wife Fayaway and I travel extensively in pursuit of our hobbies, which include the study of the occult and psychic phenomena, re-reading the great works of world literature, and the pursuit of rare protozoa. When we come to rest for any amount of time, it usually in one of three places: a grass hut in the South Pacific Island of Typee, a geodesic dome in Malibu Lake, California, or a seventeenth century mansion in the Catskills, which we share with the shades of the famous Dutch courtesan Katrina van Katzenellenbogen and her noisy clients.
