Frank’s Box: The Real Telephone to the Dead

“‘Yes, I am Frank Sumption, and I made the original Frank’s Box, or the Ghost box. I am on Facebook, but even there, the interaction with the public is disappointing. Very few are interested, everyone knows better, no matter what these boxes say. I can not tell if I hear nothing and the ‘voices’ are purely delusional, or what. Most seem interested only in ghost hunting and how to become rich and famous by doing nothing. No research, no study, no work of their own, seeking only their own reality TV show, or podcast.’”

—Frank Sumption, quoted by Dennis Cooper, “Frank’s Box: The Real Telephone to the Dead.” January 21, 2022.

Story idea. A real telephone to the dead, but we’re too busy talking to listen.
