A Glimpse of Ghostwater, Utah...

LeMort and Sons are the undertakers in Ghostwater. There is LaMort senior, the embalmer, and his two sons who retrieve the "customers" - needless to say they do a brisk business in Ghostwater!

The Abernathy is about the only good plate of grub in the town. Clay Driscoll is the cook and after years on various cattle drive chow lines he learned more than a thing or two about cooking up some mean vittles.

Marshal Brodie Buchanan is exactly what Ghostwater needs to have any semblance of law and order. A Union soldier during the Civil War, Marshal Buchanan has seen more than his fair share of bad men as well as a few things he'd like to forget - bottom line he always seems to live to tell about it.

Trimmel's General Store is a gold mine in the middle of Ghostwater. It seems this place has just about one of everything. The place is a mess and it takes some looking at times, but if you need it - no matter how odd - Ed Trimmel probably has one!

The Utah Apothecary is run by Chase Ashby, he's an inventor of sorts, though his contraptions never seem work quite right. His main line however is mixing up remedies for whatever ills torment the folks of Ghostwater. He and Doc Zane have a good working relationship and between the two of them they keep the townsfolk as healthy as they can be.

Folks are mighty proud of their dwellings on the outskirts of Ghostwater, as some say, "this berg is set fer a boom!"

...that is unless there's a bear in the neighborhood!

Boxing matches always draw a crowd, Doc Zane and Deputy Zip Bennet is always eager to call a fight for a couple dollars!

Gunfights are another common occurrence, and also draw a crowd, Deputy Zip Bennet runs to these for a different reason!

Ghostwater is not above some oddity as well. Here we see the famous Texas Ranger CW Stackpole with a pair of preachers facing down a pair of Nosferatu  with Mr. LaMort in the distance wondering if he's going to have a few "clients" soon.
