Nicely done. Loved the Highway to Heaven refernces, and of course, the NCIS.

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's always fun slipping in a few cultural reference tips-of-the -hat. Thanks for reading--Eric B.

Good job! As always, the thing that I admire most about your stories is the creativity involved in some parts of the plot. I've just read this story for judging. Thanks for writing!

Author's Response: I always try to respond to reviews as quickly as possible. I apologize for missing this. A pox upon me for not seeing it sooner!! Thank you very much for reading--Eric B.

Well Eric, once again you've amazed me with your ability to write the story within the story. For me, aside from reading a fun story like this, that has a couple of meaningful commentaries laced in as well, is the giddiness I feel at trying to find all the hidden references. I suspect I've missed a few this time, but here goes nothing.

Dr. Kildare and Ben Casey eh? All you needed was Dr. Joe Gannon and Marcus Welby and you'd have a complete medical staff. A reference to Metatron? There's so many levels to that, aside from Alan Rickman playing the role in Dogma. The dual role of Metatron as scribe (or potions master) and protector. The possible connection to arcane magic. I'm impressed by this one. Brazilian saber tooth bumble bunnies? (that's a mouthful) Are they per chance related to the La Brea Tar Pit Bugs Bunnies? Game show hosts aren't real? Why'd you have to go there? Next you'll say that Crumple-Horned Snorlacks don't exist. I heard that Joan of Arc now wears fire-retardant footed-jammies under her armor. Don't suppose Matilda the maid knew how to waltz? Those darn Burundians are branching out all over the place. Burundian Kowtowing Ale? Made with fermented coffee beans instead of hops no doubt. You know, I've heard that if you drink enough of that stuff, you develop an incurable urge to go cow-tipping. Finally, Spencer Tracey didn't spell his name wrong, I did. I'm his publicist, and as you well know, I can't spell mean Spenser. Oops! I did it again!

Hopefully this review has entertained you has much as your story entertained me. You put a lot effort into writing the story, so it's only fair that I put a little effort into the review (I know, a very little effort indeed). Another excellent story Eric. I wish you the best in the Challenge! - Mike

Author's Response: Doctors Early and Gannon were considered (Robert Fuller and Bobby Troup from the program "Emergency"). Yes Virginia, except for Drew Carey, game show hosts are all undead zombies.

Yes, this was a fun story to write; puns and all. I have utilized angels quite a bit over the years--everything from "It's a Wonderful...Potter." to "Cosmic Cow-Tipping". I referenced maybe a half-dozen other films with angels as well. They are a great device, and they are a great opportunity for story twists. I...haven't decided after my last Challenge story whether to recruit someone else. Thank you for reading--Eric.

Interesting, but slightly strange (or that could be a lot). Very different.

Author's Response: Ah...strange. Yes...I guess that is an accurate commentary--but such can be said for this Challenge as a whole. I know that I would be a little unsettled if my dead mother-in-law (mine passed away while I was deployed to Bosnia) appeared in my dreams one night. She was an excellent cook however. Extreme situations not only challenge a writer, but also provide the reader with different, and sometimes unique, opportunities. I know as well that my friend has actually been inspired to create a new cold, refreshing beverage based upon the story. Thank you for reading--Eric B,
