Tomorrow’s Ghosts is a tale that blends the supernatural with everyday existence in a quiet corner of eastern England.....
Alexis Byter’s job is never dull. After all, he is an expert on the paranormal but a routine visit from the local lady vicar starts a relationship, and a sequence of events, that takes the modern-day ghost hunter to almost the end of the world.
The past is interchangeable with the present and both might predict the future and avert disaster if Alexis can read the clues. Its just that the clues involve a sailor from Biblical times washed up on England’s East coast, mysterious leylines, visions of the Apocalypse, Punch and Judy puppets and a lascivious ghost. Oh, and a VW Beetle.
The book also includes a new free short story called Rip and Burn which is a horror story for the digital-savvy generation. If you think you know all about the dangers that lurk on the internet, think again. A hyperlink to hell could be just one click away from you.

5.0 out of 5 stars - Last night I dreamt I went to... East Anglia again - 23 May 2014
Christian knows this area well. Shares some special places with interesting history with the reader. The scene setting leads you cordially by the hand into a land where the every day, suddenly becomes a little less ordinary. A haunted window and a haunting tale with just the right amount of the unexpected.
Rip and Burn (the second short story) is quite different, but nonetheless, keeps you turning those pages to find out what happens and when you do, you are not disappointed.
4.0 out of 5 stars - Ghost hunter Alexis Byter - more please - 30 June 2014
By Neil B (Amazon Canada)
This is my first encounter with Christian's writing, and I found it very entertaining.
The main story, featuring ghost hunter Alexis Byter, maintains a great undercurrent of menace beneath the British quaintness of its veneer, and ambles along at a fair old lick which may be a problem with the novella format. This is a character that welcomes more revelation, and I hope to see more of Byter in the future.
The second, bonus story is again supremely British, to the point of copious use of Hob Nobs which might baffle the Yanks, but it put me in mind of a modern Wicker Man, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars - Thing That Go Bump In The Night - 4 July 2014
By Rae Gee
Tomorrow's Ghosts is a book containing two short stories with deal with ghosts, paranormal, the apocalypse, witches, Goths, strange music, the Devil, Nibiru, and a myriad of other strange and wonderful subjects and beings.
Charles Christian has a wonderful way with short stories. He can take a subject that many people would probably make a bit of a hash of and turn it into something amazing and interesting. His quick wit and punchy dialogue make his work easy and pleasurable to read. With Tomorrow's Ghosts it's also obvious that he's turned to some of the internet's stranger places for some of his subject matter, which makes me feel all the more better for going to those places myself! There's never a boring moment with this (sadly too) short book.
Everything flows and gels together perfectly before Christian throws a wrench in the works and forces you to do a double take. The twists and turns are perfectly plotted out and his skill at creating imagery with words is second to none. Absolutely perfect! If you like short stories, give these ones a go. And then go and sign the petition to get the author to write a full length novel!
3.0 out of 5 stars - Tomorrow's Ghosts - 22 February 2015

This is a very edgy story. Too much so for my tastes religiously speaking. Of course as is said, fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and following along with that thought, I suppose a few parts of this story could be taken as true, and all or some may reconsidered sci-fi or Monte Python ish as well. Other than that the writing and editing were superb. So readers into edgy UK / no rule religious parody paranormal mysteries will enjoy this book.
