It was during a conversation with G... that one first heard of the New England fishing village in I... The area was apparently the ideal place from which to witness unusual phenomena in space. The quality of the air, along with the conjunction of several favourable factors made one impatient to get started. Having gleaned what information one could from the British Museum, one set off with all haste.

One’s work on space and comets in particular had met with a warm response and one thought it judicious to include several original sketches of the phenomenon, sketches which one felt were sure to arouse a great deal of keen interest in the scientific circles of 1834 ... One refers naturally to the passage of Halley’s comet.

Editor’s note. Lord Boleskine’s Memoirs end at this point. Who knows what extraordinary contributions he might still have made had he not succumbed, during his visit to New England, to dementia, followed by an early death in St. Andrew’s Hospital?

Alone in the Dark

In 1924, Jeremy Hartwood, a noted artist and owner of the Louisiana mansion Derceto (named after the Syrian deity), has committed suicide by hanging himself. His death appears suspicious yet seems to surprise nobody, for Derceto is widely reputed to be haunted by an evil power. The case is quickly dealt with by the police and soon forgotten by the public. The player assumes the role of either Edward Carnby—a private investigator who is sent to find a piano in the loft for an antique dealer—or Emily Hartwood, Jeremy's niece, who is also interested in finding the piano because she believes a secret drawer in it has a note in which Jeremy explains his suicide. Whether Carnby or Hartwood, the character goes to the mansion to investigate.
