We all deserve a bedtime story. A few last words to carry with us into the darkness. I am Adrian Ward, KBE, ES (Alds), 51st Vice Chancellor of the University of Aldergate, invalid, human parasite, and lover of bizarre and macabre fiction. From Lovecraft and Poe to the hidden army of lesser craftsmen of the penny dreadful and ha'penny horrible, I have developed a deep affection for things better left alone. And I would like to share them with you.
