Morgan Island Terror

Morgan Island, one of the Sea Islands located in near Beaufort County, South Carolina, is home to a research expedition which has recently fallen silent. In 1932 Professor Morgan Haverstock and his team travelled to Morgan Island (no relation to him) and now in the early Fall of 1933 have not been heard from for more than two weeks. Miskatonic University, who provided major funding for the study, has been unable to reach the expedition either through direct radio contact or mailed correspondence. Involved in important research concerning disease and rot resistant strain of yams and sweet potatoes, his Miskatonic counterpart, Prof Everett Hoskins, has yet to receive reports of their progress. Prof Hoskins, both concerned with Haverstock’s health (portly and hypertension) lack of regular reports, alerted local authorities and Columbia University (that sponsored the expedition) regarding Haverstock and his team.

Eleven Changeling Children

Do you know what Lovecraftian critter just doesn’t seem to get enough credit? The Great Race of Yith. I mean, here they are, living five hundred million years in our past, yet swapping minds with people in our own world. They even have a cult that helps them out.
