A letter from Africa

The Mysterious Ore: A letter from Africa

“Much though it would excite the imagination of Mankind to live in a world inhabited by narwhales three to six hundred foot long, my analyses on bone strength, muscle mass, and required food (please find attached) quite rule this out. In summary, such a creature would need to spend roughly thirty hours per day eating, simply to sustain itself. There being only twenty-four hours in a day, we can confidently consign the existence of such a creature to the realm of fable.” — Prof. Wadcroft, in a letter to Prof. Pierre Arronax of the Paris museum.

Gentle Reader,

Please find under the link above the very first report of our expedition into Sudan. Expect a tale of adventure, espionage, and courage in the face of adversity. This first chapter tells how our small university in Ipswich, England, came to be chosen to search for Prof. Hammond’s expedition, lost somewhere in the African jungle.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Alan Wadcroft.
