  • Quotes

    • (intro for The Fog)
      Emily Dickinson once wrote, "Let us go in, the fog is rising." Fog has always had a mythic and disturbing quality. Like darkness, it obscures and conceals, thus it nourishes on of the primary tenets of human nature - what we cannot see, we fear.

    • (extro for The Fog)
      Mystery will always be associated with the incidents which took place at Flatrock Prison. Were these events the psychokinetic manifestation of a man some believed to be the Angel of Death, or merely the psychological and physical effects of a noxious fog? When we are afraid we try to hide, we lock our doors and windows, but what do we do if the fog and the fear find their own way in?

    • (intro for House on Garden Street)
      Haunted houses - anecdotes and research indicate that they are far more common than people care to admit. Are these houses inhabited by the bio-electric residues of former residents, or could these haunts reflect the existence of something else, something closer to home?

    • (extro for House on Garden Street)
      Recurrent focused spontaneous psychokinesis - an internal psychological mechanism which in file #810126 manifested apparitions specific to Richard and Lauren Cooke's life experience. Their home wasn't haunted, their relationship was. At last report the Cooke's are living happily in their home on Garden Street.

    • Lindsey: As you can see in the file, his first name, Hedeon, means "destroyer", and his last name, Mishenka, means "god-like".
      Peter: Ah, what's in a name...
