Hi guys, new to the community, just started Miskatonic last semester..|
I'm going to be majoring in Physics, which isn't anything special or unique I guess, but I have to ask this question: have any of you felt a strange feeling while in the library? Not a specific part of the library mind you, but the library as a.. as a whole.
Alright, now I feel a little weird telling you this because even I am thinking to myself, "Wow this guy is weird." But please hear me out.
I walked in to the library the other day to pick up a few books, specifically Geographical books about the town of Innsmouth, a small town near the coast. I've heard tales of the city and became interested, and seeing as how this is summer and I have nothing to do, I wanted to read up on it.
Well as soon as I walked in to the place I had the immediate urge to turn around and walk back out. I've never had this kind of feeling before, and to say that it was strange would be to say that Rode Island is small. So I fought the urge and headed towards the back of the library, which lead me to Biographies and the like.
A book caught my eye. A name, actually. William Taber. It was an old book. Not much on the cover except for that name, and other than that there was no description of what the book was actually about.
Now here's my question to you: Have any of you ever heard of a William Taber? I've done a search (google) for the name and I've only found a few references to bees, but nothing more. The book itself has a strange fascination with bees, and having only read the first chapter I'm beginning to wonder if this man was a bee keeper or just loved bees.
One thing he made mention of in the first chapter was something he heard that he labeled 'From the Sea' but never mentioned what it was or where it came from. I'm assuming.. um.. from the sea.
Anyways, I'll finish up this book and let you know what it is exactly.. and hopefully I won't have to go back to that library. It was as if it was leading me to this book.
