'Future Ghost' and 'Speedin' Bullet' are the two initial volumes of Jack Grant's extensive novel 'The Screamin' Skull Trilogy', belonging to the horror fantasy series, 'The Infinitude of the Sentient Singularity'.
The series begins with 'Future Ghost'. A young lady looking for inspiration on a Scottish moor finds instead a gothic nightmare with her only chance of salvation lying beyond the mortal realm.
This is followed by 'Speedin' Bullet'. In stark contrast to the previous instalment, the reader is transported to the barren scorched landscape of Old Ozzaria. 'Speedin' Bullet' relates a dystopian future, in which a man driven by revenge attempts to survive a deadly tournament that will push him to his absolute physical limits while testing the extreme voracity of his inner steely resolve.
The thread running throughout each volume touches upon dualities and the very definite living of double lives. The story also examines and brings into question conventional customary attitudes as compared to contemporary ostensible politically correct ideologies. These stories, rooted in spiritual knowledge while being interspersed with humour, highlight the strength of human defiance against adversity.

From the misty stretch enshrouding a haunted Scottish moor
To the dry parched wastelands that curse old Ozzaria
The 'esteemed' guides and guardians battle on.
Old rogues can scheme in cider drenched dreams
Envisioning fame and fortune in the limelight gifted by stage and screen;
Yet ghosts gather in to forewarn the unwary
Of just what they may become
Or more importantly,
Remind them about who they had once been.
Sorcery doeth scry the blazing fire
That fuels the Jolly Roger's desire
On towards the renegades
Who stalk the arid Arizona plains.
The feral howling manifests a screech in the wilderness
To conjure the starving wretch
Who all too readily accepts
The reaper's cull
And out there in the badlands
The cry shrieks on
To herald the nightmare of ...
... The Screamin' Skull.

About the Author
Jack Grant has always been psychic ever since he can remember. His spirit guides have, over the years, put his abilities to good use ‘out there in the field’, which is their terminology rather than his own.
With spirituality in addition to a love of music playing a large part in his life, these insights and experiences have emerged through his writing.
Many true accounts are therefore presented in the form of compelling fiction.
A constant thread throughout ‘The Infinitude Of The Singularity: Screamin’ Skull Trilogy’ references songs from the rock outfit, ‘Quantafide’ of which Jack Grant is a founding member and co-writer along with the artist Conrad King.
