    What a compelling story. And creepy.

    Wow, well done Jenny! Pretty fucking awesome how the writing rolls along smoothly as the entire world changes for these people in light of what should have been a fantastic discovery. Instead of being hailed as the discoverers of the lost Pickerman manuscript, life becomes a confusing hell from which there is no escape. The person who reaps the benefits from all this wildness is not who the reader would expect. The comments on the New American Legends site actually add to the overall freakiness of the story. INTENSE!

      I appreciate hearing that SO MUCH — I know you read and write a LOT of dark stories.
