Fiction[]

The Story So Far[]

The gypsy woman who read Rex's palm in Lithuania had shrieked in his face, screaming a single word over and over, pointing one bony, talon-like finger at him.

"Cursed," his translator had said, shrugging and clapping his thick hands together to ward off spirits.

The rest of the trip hadn't gone any better. The diary he'd found detailing the secret rituals of the local cults had gone missing, but Rex was used to things like that. Heck, he'd discovered and lost enough evidence of strange things over the years to almost believe he might be cursed. That business in Innsmouth with the photographs that had blown out to sea in the wind. The tracks in Dunwich that had washed away in the rain just before he'd brought the sheriff out to see. Time and again, something had gone wrong.

Stepping out of the offices of the Arkham Advertiser, Rex sighed and ran his hand through his goatee. This time, nothing was going to stop him from getting at the truth.[1]

When disaster strikes, Rex Murphy is usually on hand, suffering the consequences. After spending a day with Rex, even the most hardened skeptic will concede that the man is cursed. Anytime he had a lead on a good story, something would go wrong. That business in Innsmouth with the photographs that had blown out to sea. The tracks in Dunwich that had washed away in the rain just before he'd brought the sheriff. His terrible fortune has more than once exposed him to gruesome beasts and occult conspiracies. To survive, Rex has developed an inquisitive mind, keeping one step ahead of the next disaster.[2]
