Peculiar goings-on after authors participate in Lit Select's Legendary Stories: What Went Wrong anthology.
Time Out for Teachers
Not only that, nothing has been seen of EFL teacher and writer N.O.A. Rawle after she submitted her work "Balancing Act" to the anthology. Her worried relatives reported that the last communication they had from her was just after she arrived at the Spring Fair, "She called me to tell me that she had encountered a travelling salesman by the name of Monsiuer du Monde and was about to pass through his mysterious machine, the Equiliberator." her husband told me earlier. "That was the last I saw of my wife. Our Children are distraught." A spokesperson for the Hellenic Police said "No one else can recall having seen such a travelling salesman at the fair, but investigations are on-going."
Mystical Texts Under Examination
Author Bryan Nickelberry, who wrote the "Misfire" story about the Cthulu cult gone wrong, related his experience. "A friend of mine gave me a copy of the Necronomicon years ago, and I began reading it in the car on the way home. Things got very strange after that, and have never quite been the same. On a relatively consistent basis we'd have things like me mentioning a phone ringing or a knock on the door; only to have a phone ring, or a knock on the door in real life. Strange circumstances like that have always been a part of my life; but this put things into overdrive. I think most things are back to normal now; maybe; but to this day my friends and I will randomly say, 'The phone rings' and we all know what it means."

Questions sent to media contact, Harley Easton, were replied to by an email stating, "Believe office haunted or possessed. Being malevolent. Can't call. Must keep chanting."
Designer, Teresa Conner, was contacted by phone, but only a strange howling was heard before the line went dead.
