Inside the AT&SF Railway station in Emporia, Kansas, Snyder Starr ended what might have been a far worse incident with a lightening quick six-gun. Clearly, he was a capable man, short in stature but big on integrity, courage, and fair play. A Civil War veteran, he fought for the losing side, and stood at Appomattox as the surrender was signed, then carried the news to his outfit, McNeill Rangers, awaiting word. The war was over, but the loss did not sit easy; Snyder was a restless man. He wandered westward plying his railroad occupation, but found he could not live long in any one place before he had to draw his gun. To their detriment, people tended to underestimate him. Wherever he roamed, he also won admirers by applying bow to violin. Although accomplished, cultured, and knowledgeable, Snyder wasn’t prepared for the opportunities that killing the behemoth bully in Emporia presented. In one act, doors to the paranormal opened to aid him in events, which he inadvertently set in motion; a struggle between two worlds, and an evilly aligned faction led by the dead giant’s even more menacing twin, who stood in the way of a bright future and a beloved woman with special talents of her own.
