Soul Smuggler

by Milo James Fowler

Who is Mercer?  Coyote. Soul Smuggler.
A body-hopping, phantasmal anti-hero. A disenfranchised spirit doomed to inherit the earth, cursed by both Heaven and Hell. 

An enemy of God, but no friend of the devil.

Soul Smuggler collects 6 Mercer tales:

“The Coyote” – In the future, Mercer’s services are requested by a powerful man seeking to keep his stepdaughter quiet about certain indiscretions.

“Soul Smuggler” – An orphan boy seeks Mercer’s help in reuniting with his dead mother.
“The Second Option” – Father Thomas, assassin from the clandestine Terra Sacra order, sets out to destroy Mercer once and for all. 

“Abomination of Desolation” – A boy with horrifying powers is at the top of the Church’s extermination list, replacing Mercer for the time being. Father Thomas makes Mercer a deal he can’t refuse if he helps rid the earth of the young abomination.

“Mercer’s Ghost” - In this weird western, a young man on the frontier in search of fame and fortune instead finds himself swindled and left destitute. But help arrives in the form of a phantasmal, body-hopping gunslinger who seems to have ulterior motives. 

“The Coyote’s Word” (NEW in this updated collection) – When Mercer says he’ll take a soul across the border, he’s true to his word. But navigating the afterlife is no easy feat, even for the Soul Smuggler.

by Ian Measures

Soul. They say everybody has one. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it – but you can feel it. It’s a part of you. Some say it’s the very fabric of your existence. When you die, your flesh rots and turns to ash, but your soul lives on for eternity.

But what if someone tried to take it? Steal the very thing that makes you who you are. Would you fight for it? What would you do to keep it? How far would you go to save your soul?
