The Occult Detective’s #LastWrites with… Greg Mitchell


Welcome to the fifth installment of LAST WRITES.

The premise is simple. My guests face their final rest, but before Death claims them they are granted a few earthly pleasures, the memories of which will travel with them into the great unknown.

gmitchellToday’s guest is Greg Mitchell, a screenwriter and novelist and author of “The Coming Evil Trilogy”. His eclectic career includes seven novels, several short stories, two Syfy Channel Original Movies—”Snakehead Swamp” and “Zombie Shark”—and a co-writing credit on the non-fiction work “Back in Time: The Unauthorized Back to the Future Chronology”. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Northeast Arkansas.

Today is also his Birthday. Seems the perfect day for his Last Writes, no?


I’d spend an evening at Steak N Shake, feasting on burgers, chili, and malts while listening to oldies.


Oh dear, this is going to sound bad, but I think I’d read one of my own. Probably HITMEN: Four Tales of Magick, Monsters, and Murder—not because I think it’s necessarily “death bed” material, but because that book is my most personal piece. It’s essentially a novelization of the home movies me and my friends made over the years. I’d love to revisit it and relive all those memories associated with it one last time.


I’d cheat. I’d watch the entire Back to the Future Trilogy back to back to back.


Stand By Me” by Ben E. King…or perhaps “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC if I was going out in a blaze of glory.


My sincerest hope is to see Jesus and hear the words “Well done, my good and faithful servant”. But right after Him, I’d love to see my friend Zach who died last year at the age of 38 from stroke.
