Chairman of the Board

Novella published by Sinister Regard, January 2013, under the name Perry Slaughter.

Though a major chess and computer nerd, Sam Pauling has nonetheless managed to score a date with Kate Fitzhugh, the most beautiful girl at school. The budding romance is barely off the ground, however, before Sam finds himself caught up against his will with the local party crowd and their decadent entertainment of choice—a ouija board with a particularly nasty sense of humor. When a moment of temptation leaves the occult device in his possession, Sam learns to his horror that every slope is slippery and all morality relative, and that even a newly popular "chairman of the board" has no right to expect a happy ending to his life story.
