The Witch At The End Of The World: Spook Riders 

My story The Witch At The End Of The World (currently available in Thirty Years Of Rain), like so much of what I write is influenced by music. In this case the characters sing as they travel. Suicide's "Ghost Rider" is one of the tracks they sing, it felt right, the idea of these riders traveling through the land of the dead. The living haunt the dead lands, the end of the world. During the writing and editing process of this story Alan Vega of Suicide died, so this started to feel like some small tribute. I also link here to The Young Gods cover of the same song, another version that was going through my head, electronic stripped to acoustic, in turn in my story stripped to a cappella.
