Default Cyclopean - An Excess of Radium, Part 2

December 15th, 2009, 19:40
Part 2 of the Cyclopean story sample titled An Excess of Radium:
We set out at dawn on the next, fortuitously cooler, day. Prior to our introduction, Pardee had already rented a mule at Faulknerís and secured our equipment: rope, lamps, provisions for a week, and light climbing and digging gear. The kit looked fine to me. I was more skeptical about finding the hole than exploring it. I hadnít ever heard of a working mine around Dunwich, and the only news Iíd ever had about the Rusty Wheel was from my new boss.

Pardee unfurled a hand drawn map assembled, he explained, from several other maps and surveys, and a few written accounts. He had marked his masterpiece with what he deduced to be the exact location of the site, as well as the winding route between us and it. It wasnít far as the crow flies, but we would have to navigate the labyrinthine tangle of the ravines. A single stream which, according to the map, watered the mine was to be our guide almost the entire way.

This story is completely brilliant and well worth a read!

Pairs of people are waiting on the edge of their seats for the thrilling conclusion!

An Excess of Radium is definitely, without a doubt, the most exciting lengthy tale yet from the Cyclopean archive!

To make it less embarassing for scott: Yes, the story is really worth a read. A bit too long for the usual lunchbreak, but I finally got around to reading it, and it is worth the time.
