Agent Bryan Teague travels from the London offices to a remote area of Scotland on the call of Lord Pennyfarthing, a self-proclaimed scientist and specialist in ancient and rare fauna.

This story was formerly under the code name “Northern Mists”. Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris commissioned this short story for their Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences universe as part of the Tales from the Archives Season 2 (or Volume II) anthology. They released “The Cross of Columba” in audio form as Tales from the Archives Volume II, Episode 7. The e-book version of the story is available for just $0.99 for the Kindle, Nook, and from Smashwords and Kobo as well. I really enjoyed the opportunity to play in their world and add to the history of the Ministry. Please let Tee and Pip know if you’d like to hear me tell more stories in their world.
