It’s a big day here at the Inland Voyage.
A story I wrote about multiple fire calls to a residence northwest of Lesterville made the daily round-up of weird news aggregated by the British magazine, the Fortean Times. The publication specializes in writing about the strange phenomena taking place around the world, and it has been one of my favorite magazines since discovering it a decade or so ago. It’s a great and fascinating read every month.
As a reporter, I’m always keeping my eye out for things I think the magazine might find of interest. And with the unfortunate series of fires that took place near Lesterville recently, I thought its editors may be interested.
I was right!
It joins stories such as “Anglo Avenger ordered to stop building neo-Stonehenge, cyber bot goes walkabout, plus liquid worms in space.”
Of course, it would have been better had the fires never occurred and the Bauder family still had its barn and home. I’m not trying to make light of the situation.
It’s just that the Fortean Times holds a very special place in my heart, and its a bit of a privilege to be able to contribute.
