A Concerned Citizen Writes Re: The Dissappearance of Dr. Mallory and What it May Mean for Society at Large!

Dear Reader,

You will doubtless know that we at the London Reconstituted Press normally only publish public letters in our “Letters to the Editor” column that won awards at the International Printing Awards last year for advances in the field of publishing.  It was a close run with the french daily “L’Esprit National” – though fine British ingenuity topped the scale.

But I digress.

Recently we were telegraphed a letter which we will print here in it’s original entirety.  We believe that the public may find it illuminating.  This letter is regarding the disappearance of Dr. Mallory, the Esteemed Physicist, just over a month ago.

TO RECON PRESS STOP I AM A CONCERNED CITIZEN COMMA AND I WISH TO SHED LIGHT ON THE DISAPPEARANCE OF DR MALLORY STOP I WRITE YOU FROM NEW ORLEANS STOP DR MALLORY WAS RECENTLY HERE SPEAKING WITH THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO THE SPANISH COLONIES STOP RUMOUR HAS IT THAT HE IS PLANNING AN EXPEDITION TO CAPTURE LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE TO POWER A MACHINE THAT WILL HAVE MORE COMPUTATIONAL POWER THAN A CURRENT STEAM DRIVEN MACHINE COMMA A MACHINE HE PLANS TO USE FOR THE PROPER CALCULATION OF THE NUMBER OF ALTERNATE WORLDS AND TO CREATE A BETTER METHOD FOR VIEWING THEM STOP THIS WOULD EVENTUALLY LEAD TO THE POSSIBLITY FOR REGULAR PEOPLE TO SEE THE ARTIFACTS OF THESE ALTERNATE WORLD COMMA PERHAPS EVEN TRAVEL TO THEM STOP

As you can see, if we are to believe the authenticity of this letter, Dr. Mallory is safe in the Spanish North Americas, and is working on a discovery of epic proportions.  Whether he succeeds or not, he works to further the cause of science and discovery for Britain and all Her Subjects.

Yrs Humble and Obedient Servent & etc,

Horatio Fedgewick, Grand Editor

  1. Would you like to contribute to the fiction of PMOG officially? I’d love to have you write this story as an official part of the Codex.

  2. Hello, nice site :)
