Shannon Stacey

Conversation with Zach…

…the hero (and leading ghost) of In the Spirit:

Zach: The sex scenes are too short.

Shan: I’m not going to give a blow by blow, so to speak, of every grunt and thrust.

Zach: You’re making me look like a two-minute wonder, here.

Shan: You’re a dead guy in love with a not-dead woman, and you’re worried about how your staying power looks?

Zach: Like you said, I’m dead. I’ve gotta have something to offer her.

Shan: It’s a short story, Zach. There’s only so much space.

Zach: Couldn’t you cut out the parts where we like…talk and shit?

Shan: You mean the character development and the romantic arc?

Zach: Yeah, that stuff.

Shan: No. Now be good and say your lines or you’ll not only be a dead guy, but a dead guy with a premature ejaculation problem.

Zach: I should have gone into the light.
