The Last Train
by Richard Alan
In this short and witty novella, Jake traverses a treacherous path between heaven and hell to reunite with his beloved Bernadette. A vacation celebrating their Silver Anniversary goes very wrong, and so the bizarre journey begins. Jake’s premature death is the catalyst for this comical, suspenseful, and thrilling page-turner. Love is the fuel that empowers his resolute stubbornness.
“The Last Train” is a romantic comedy with a symphony of twists that defy an accurate genre classification. You will face the most unusual life after-death situations throughout. Angels and demons fight, and crazy people roam the pages. Humor and horror face our sarcastic hero, labeled “heaven’s most wanted.”
It has been described as, “Laugh out loud funny” and, “Bloody brilliant!”

Richard Alan is nearing 61 years of life experience this November. From unchained freedom in the late 60’s & Hippie 70’s, to his biker life, and rocking out as a rock band leader, singer, songwriter & soloist through folk, psychedelic, metal, the experimental 80’s, progressive, and Gothic music, he's had quite a life - even without the story of his lifelong writing! He was recently compared to Andy Garcia and ZZ Top because of his beard, and he thought that was pretty cool.
Primarily a writer of Fantasy, Horror, and Sci-fi with a genre bending Vampire series in the works starting with "The Rising of Julian Adams", he also has a Children's Fantasy nearing publication titled, "The First Adventures of Shawn". He has also written a short story for an e-zine publication, entitled "Encounters with Trixie" that this reviewer had the good fortune to read. It's a sci-fi horror unlike anything you have probably read before, gritty and morbid with a dash of twisted compassion, and you too will have the chance to get your hands on it when it is released as part of an upcoming kindle collection. So stay tuned and get connected!
