The Long Weekend continues for Caleb Bane. Last seen going to jail for crimes he didn’t commit, Caleb plots for a way to be released, unaware of the new dangers brought about by his problems in the mysterious town of Hempstead. Ophalandus Brasfield II’s My Extended Vacation is a twisted tale of the supernatural – of ancient magic turned into new crime, of strange persons walking the streets of modern America still living in the time of Salem’s witch hunts – it turns the quaint little town into a perfect setting for this mind-bogglingly good Gothic tale.

First, Caleb Bane must use his wits and his newfound strength to outwit the machinations of the new Sheriff of Hempstead, Hugo Sanchez. He must break free and find his mysterious persecutors. Violence and frustration meet his every move while events seem to go on without admitting him into their progress. This does not bode well for Caleb’s exiting the weekend that has him in its steel trap.

Into the picture are factored in personages who seem symbolic of chess pieces in a game of spiritual damnation. Richard Fales, a relative of Leona Sharpe came to Hempstead with hopes for a new job and a fresh start. Instead, he found more at the unemployment office than even he suspected. Dustin Barkley, Caleb’s friend, solved mysteries with a new partner – a mysterious but intriguing woman who was hiding more than her fair share of secrets. Finally, two new adversaries wait to challenge the perseverance of both the Masters of Voodoo and the Brother. When all is said and done, Caleb may wish he spent an extended vacation elsewhere.
