“Ghosts of the living”, both a snappy interjection and an apt summary of the dangers faced by The Middleman and his enthusiastic side-kick. A haunting on a sorority campus looks routine enough, until Wendy realises that the ghosts floating around still have very-much-alive human counterparts. Beneath the tale lies jealousy, debauchery and 40-minute conversations about who called who ‘fat’. Meanwhile, Tyler Ford attempts to retrace the events from his two-day-amnesia, adamant that he met his soul-mate in the missing days. His mission proves semi-successful, leading him straight into the arms of Lacey Thornfield. Wendy is none-too-pleased to learn of the boy-of-her-dreams hooking up with her best friend, but she has that ghost problem and the prospect of yet another destructive explosion to worry about first.”
If a cursed tuba from the Titanic is played, it will cause all those who hear it to drown in the icy waters of the north Atlantic. So Wendy and the Middleman don period clothes and attend a Titanic-themed yacht party in order to stop the tuba’s original owner from giving a performance. Elsewhere, The Middleman and Lacey embark on their first date.”
“Varsity Fanclub, also known as the Pentarchs of Clothar, was a boy band serving as the alias for a group of five dictators from the Clothar Galaxy. The members were known on Earth as Jake, Thomas, Bobby, Drew, and David.
The group used a warphole generator powered by the screams of tweenage girls to create a warphole big enough to teleport themselves back home. They tried five times to create a warphole before they would have succeeded, each progressively larger, starting from New York to Toledo to Albany to Kalamazoo to Cleveland, then finally to Metro Theater. The group was thwarted by the Middleman, Wendy Watson, and the late Commander Mark II Cindy of the Clotharian Rebel Fleet. (“The Boyband Superfan Interrogation”)”
