TIM PRASIL

Welcome to the twelfth 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.

Today’s guest is none other than Tim Prasil, a writer of ghostly fiction and stage and audio dramas. He has authored two impressive bibliographies of fiction: Chronological Bibliography of Early Occult Detectives, which revises the standard history of occult detective fiction by tracing the cross-genre back to 1817, and The Legacy of Ghost Hunter Fiction. You’ll find both of these along with information about Prasil’s Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mysteries series, actual news reports about ghosts, and more at his website: The Merry Ghost Hunter.

LAST MEAL

Seafood of some sort. There’s a Mexican restaurant on the other side of town that makes a tilapia platter that’s, well, to die for. So that please!

LAST BOOK
The one I never got around to writing. Might be fun to see how it ends.

LAST MOVIE
Either Local Hero (1983) or Cinema Paradiso (1988). The latter is a fair bit longer, so perhaps that one — to stall the inevitable.

LAST SONG
How about something by Brahms, if it’s not a bother?

FIRST PERSON YOU’D LIKE TO MEET ON THE OTHER SIDE

My great-grandfather, František Prasil, who in 1904 emigrated from a land then called Bohemia (now the Czech Republic) to Chicago in the hopes of joining his step-sister, Lida. I’d like to say thanks for coming and ask him how was the trip.
