Recipe for a “Hard Spell”
Start with 1 ½ to 2 lbs of “Dragnet” (the original, not the Tom Hanks/Dan Ackroyd satire)
Mix in ½ lb. of “X-Files,” but separate out the skeptical Scully. This recipe does not call for skeptics.
Melt and add a half-stick of Raymond Chandler (especially his essay “The Simple Art of Murder,” which contains the oft-quoted description, “Down these mean streets a man must go, a man who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid.”)
Add five finely-chopped pages from “The Dresden Files”
Sauté together 1 oz. each of “Hellboy,” “Hellblazer,” and “Cal McDonald” and add to the mixture.
Add a pinch of “30 Days of Night.” Okay, 2 pinches.
In a bowl combine 1 oz each of “Millennium,” “Brimstone,” and “The Night Stalker” (the original TV-movie only, not the series, which even Darren McGavin hated) and gently fold into the mixture
Marinate ¾ lb of kielbasa in 6 oz. of bourbon. Set aside to serve as a side dish.
Strain the mixture through a word processor, then serve to an adoring (if you’re lucky) public. ;)

I really hope all of you have a great weekend. I am going under for a really serious crunch on my last round of editing before I sent Kahlotus back to Amy.
