Montréal: Je me souviens Montréal is great for any tourist standards. The city is nice, with integration between the old European style architecture, and the modern contemporary structures around the city. This is one of the reasons why we chose Montréal as a start point for our small reunion. Flying from Chicago, Sisca and I touched down in Montréal Dorval airport around 7pm, and tried to locate Yusuf, Johnschen and Fitria that had arrived from Baltimore two hours prior our landing. This is a French territory, as I reminded myself, as we saw many European looking people walking all around us speaking French. It doesn’t feel like we are still in North America; after all, Québec is trying to liberate itself from Canada, with the failure of 49-51 votes several years back. This is the reason ... read more

An Excerpt from the Travel Journal of Nigel Fox (c. 1940) Entry 28 -- The Black Horseman She feels herself falling away . . . . Even before the reel ended, I had to excuse myself. . . The Shock "We are extremely sorry to have had to display this film to you Mister Fox. The men we arrested had several of these films, mostly taken of the torture and experimentation on the Hebrew people. This one, however, had your name mentioned in it. Do you recognise the woman who was savaged in this film?" "Certainly," I answered, automatically, in a dazed fashion. "The woman was Missus Norah LaPierre." "Would you kindly assist us in our investigation?" "Of course," I responded, still reeling from the shock. They wanted me to go into detail. After being given ... read more

An Excerpt from the Travel Journal of Nigel Fox (c. 1940) ENTRY 27 -- The Red Horseman The sun made dappled patterns on the ground as I sat on a park bench under the shade of a large maple. My appreciation of trees had grown appreciably since my miraculous encounter several weeks earlier. To my knowledge, my pursuers never figured out how I had outwitted them. I had left England and travelled to Canada via New York. My next challenge would be to find suitable accommodation. Hence, the reason I was sitting on Mount Royal studying the classified section of the Montreal Star. According to one advert, there was a comfortable room to let not far from the park at 3569 Lorne Avenue. The rooming house was large, attractive, and set slightly back from the street ... read more

ENTRY ONE — April 25th 1986 The Maple Leaf I could not believe that my wife of thirteen months was threatening to leave me! Nor the reason for her possible departure! Miranda and I have been the victims of some strange occurrences. We have also made a rather disturbing discovery. The mystery seems to involve a 19th century cult called the Catholic Apostolic Church. . . She had always stood by me in the past, particularly during those difficult days when I challenged the authorities at seminary. Miranda, a beautiful but determined "Rochester girl" had made up her mind to marry me soon after we'd met: "Twenty-seven is old enough for a woman to know what she wants in a man!" The days following our wedding were filled with tedious tasks: t... read more
