The lumbering monstrocity that is Ghost Town began at approximately 5:19 PM on September 8 in the year of our Lord, 1999. Loosely based on the Phantasm films and the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, the story follows the weary traveler Gregor's exploits. It suffered a simultaneous posting, forcing the story into two different tales of adventure, which later converged back into a single story. It was a monumental and epic narrative that took many unexpected twists and turns (and left its share of loose ends) that ended up being quite entertaining. Thanks, of course, to you!

Did you Notice
  • The many references to the Phantasm films, the Dark Tower series of novels, and the Cthulhu Mythos?
    • The character Angus refers to the actor Angus Scrimm, who plays the malevolent Tall Man in the Phantasm movies.
    • The main character, Gregor, bears much resemblance to the Gunslinger in the Dark Tower series. Also, Ghost Town's very structure (stories diverging, then converging towards the end) is eerily remeniscent of the Dark Tower series.
    • Ghost Town also referenced H.P. Lovecraft's infamous Cthulhu Mythos.
  • Other various influences and references: Fight Club and Lord of the Rings.
  • Technically, this story is closing into the Phone Calls tandem story.
