CHANNILLO
Lightning Strikes Twice
By Jeff Stone

Series Description:

Jason Arnan is a confused spiritual seeker, prone to depression, who engages in astral projection. Abaddon Enfer, a restless demon, schemes to posses Jason's body by exploiting these openings. While Jason's spirit is in an idyllic dream world, Enfer dives toward the void his spirit has left in hopes of possessing a human form. Michael Santi, an angel, rushes to intercept Enfer. During the great struggle that ensues, bolts of lightning infused with otherworldly particles from the combatants strike Jason's body. He is imbued with both the angelic power of healing and the demonic power of manipulative control as well as other surprising characteristics that threaten to pull him apart as he seeks opportunities for doing good deeds while fighting dark urges.

Jeff Stone participated in international education efforts while teaching a variety of courses for two community colleges and Latin America's premier university system for fifteen years. In the fall of 2015, he completed his first novel, Counting the Daysa literary story of love, loss, discovery, buddies, and baseball for which he's still seeking a proper venue. His short story "Fire" gained the Gold Writer distinction in ArtAscent's April 2016 "Heat" issue (pp. 14-17), and "Well Enough" was published by ArtAscent in the December 2015 "Haunting" issue (pp. 52-3).

Jeff has loved words since his grandmother put old catalogs in front of him to do with as he pleased before he could speak and could barely sit upright. Of course, many people wondered if he would ever speak until they caught him telling a story to an Australian Shepherd, Sir Robert, who was his dear companion from the ages of four to twenty-two. He has experience as a lead singer and songwriter in various rock bands that were heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin, the doors, Jimi Hendrix, Stone Temple Pilots, and others. His interests are many but namely include literature, baseball, art, music, culture, travel, history, learning, the universe, and spirituality.

On "Fire," Oleksandra Osadcha writes, "The author masterfully applies the difference in 'zoom' of the narration…. This creates a profound panoramic vision, which is strengthened with bright images appealing to our physical senses…. He shifts the tragedy to a philosophical level…"
