31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Night Wire" (1926)

@ 1:00 PM

H.F. Arnold was 24 years old when he published this story in WEIRD TALES magazine. Thankfully, the magazine's publisher didn't see the worth of the story, and so didn't make it a cover story and didn't assign an illustrator to render it.

Good. Because this is another business-like, completely realistic tale, about a man working the night shift on a news wire. Your brain will burn a few gears imagining what's only hinted at by the protagonist. He starts receiving reports from a country that doesn't exist, about...something horrible happening.

Or is the country closer than he thinks?
