Haunted Steel Adventuresby E. Scott Spencer
A bright young man, Matthew, and a posh young woman, Azur, struggle to understand strange psychic phenomena. Matt, a practical Engineer, cannot believe what he sees and feels, while Azur, a snooty English parapsychology expert, thinks she knows all about it. A difficult romance develops as they interact with undead creatures who were Matt's ancestors. These entities are playful one moment and deadly the next, powerful in some ways, surprisingly weak in others, with strong interests in practical jokes and sex. Matt is fascinated by their invisibility, but Azur is afraid they will kill her.
The setting for these adventures is a dilapidated English country house that is falling into the sea. Matt is torn between heartaches over Azur and his fight to install steel beams under the large house before it washes away. He is determined to stop the erosion and restore the house to its former glory, even though bureaucrats are trying to demolish it and build a power plant on the site. Perhaps his weird grandparents can help . . . .perhaps he can somehow win Azur . . . . perhaps the rock under the house won't crush him before he installs enough steel . . . .
Details from both the psychic and the engineering worlds are extensive, and somewhat authentic. A complete but not-overly-technical description of the structural engineering is in an Appendix for those who wish to learn more.
