29th December 1923 (afternoon)

We set ourselves four objectives at the library today: research what we can about the Mr. John Scott who runs The Hermetic Order of the Silver Twilight, check through the papers of any mention of The Hermetic Order, research the history of the land that the club house is built on and finally research the […]

29th December 1923 (morning)

Over breakfast I heard my colleges’ tales of their visit to the Hermetic Order of the Silver Twilight.
From their description the club house was not lacking in any luxury. It was confident enough in the local pull of it’s patrons to flout the Prohibition with an open bar.
My colleges had no sooner begun to […]

28th December 1923

My colleges and I spent pretty much all of the day in the Boston Library. We set ourselves a number of goals; pinpoint the location of the Scott Farm, look into the case of Erin O’Malley and discover more about the history of The Order.
The Farmhouse
We found a map which showed the original position of […]

27th December 1923

My colleges and I are now settling into our hotel rooms in Boston. The day went very much as planned.
In the morning, while we were bringing Detective Bethel up to speed, Prof. Deveraux told us that the club house of the Order was not far from the Cambridge Road and could well be close to […]

26th December 1923 (continued)

Dr. Ewers’s landlady, Mrs Stouski, was a little surprised at my early visit but let me in when I told her that I was the bearer of personal news for the good doctor.I was shown to a sitting room and a few minutes later a bleary eyed Dr. Ewers entered. I started off by informing […]

26th December 1923

I have just had the most unsettling experience, or perhaps I should say series of experiences. If it wasn’t for certain, tangible, evidences I would be tempted to say that my reading of Copeland’s “The Zanthu Tablets: A Conjectural Translation” had undermined my sanity.It began yesterday, Christmas Day. I am not big on Christmas and […]

15th October 1923

I’ve dug out my box of notes and looked again at the pictures of the creature from New Orleans. It and The Stalker of the Void are clearly two of a kind. The black book was destroyed in the fire (perhaps for the best) but Prof. Devero has found mention of The Stalker in […]

1st October 1923

I thought that the previous night was horrifying but it pails in comparison to the terror and tragedy of last night.
It all started while Mr. Brent and I were on watch. I had elected to stay on guard in my room, since it was closer to Adam’s room, while Mr. Brent was downstairs.
I became aware […]

30th September 1923

What a night of horror. At times I was not sure if I, or any of us, will live to see the dawn.
It all started just before we were going to leave on our nocturnal visit to the Bensten Manor. The six of us plus Mr. Whitelock were in the living room when we heard […]

29th September 1923

A pleasant night for the most part. At some point in the early hours I was awoken by what sounded like tapping on one of the bedroom windows. I couldn’t resist having a look but it turned out to be a tree branch being blown against the window frame. Honestly, how silly. Next thing I […]
