The New Babbage Welcoming Centre

The boy has been a failure! We crave fresh meat and he delivers the occasional festering corpse, skinny rat or stale pie (the cow was good). My brothers and sisters hunger. Already they forage above. But the city will notice if we overconsume on stray cats and wandering urchins.

Stanton Morelock brought me a flyer he discovered while hunting pigeon and sea gull. The flyer was advertising the opening of a new ‘Welcoming Centre.’ Fresh tourists may be just what we need to augment our diet. For awhile at least their disappearance will likely go unnoticed.

If only Father would return…

      Not to mention…

      shrizzle snakes, wiggyfish, sewer beasts, land sharks, zombies plagues, dyspeptic Martians, old gods, the Congress of Cosmic Egress and invaders from dimension Z… and heaven help you if you’re late returning your library books.

      But no more Smashington killer clanks. At least we’re safe from them… OR ARE WE??

        shrizzle sna-

        uh, library books ? *eyes them on his desk

        ……Cosmic Egress and invaders form dimension Z….

        I don’t suppose there’s information regarding this “Cosmic Egress *outside* the library?

            Oh my, quite an extraordinary experience.

            subaetheric portals

            displacement engines …


            Blue boxes? (*makes a quick reference check and nods realizing) Right, blue boxes. Interesting bit that …er, being said there…”agents on the ground”…makes a body wonder doesn’t it?
