    Summary

    There are many confines, wards and dungeons in this world and to Felix Albion there is a certain country house that, at times, he could count as the worst of all. Yet, after the death of his fiancee during a daring production of Hamlet that used the architecture of the house itself its the stage, he returned to make it into his home. For he believes Hamlet's wisdom that nothing is either good or bad but thinking makes it so. To him, this will be the one place he feels at peace. He has gradually devoted his life to turning the aged, inhospitable manor into a museum stuffed full of historical artefacts and strange, dead, squamous creatures that would give H.P. Lovecraft nightmares. Felix has become the king of the infinite space inside his shell. Those who encounter him often wonder why his satisfaction with his life as curator of his kingdom isn't marred by the bad dreams he must surely suffer.

    Summary

    Ten years ago on a cold dark night,
    There was someone killed 'neath the town hall light.
    There were few at the scene but they all did agree
    That the man who ran looked a lot like me.
    The judge said, "Son what is your alibi ?
    If you were somewhere else, then you won't have to die."

    - Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin

    Summary

    The adventures of Nell Price, her husband Ian's rock 'n' roll group and her folk singing friend Rosemary (who prefers to be known as Flora). The story is based loosely on the lives of, and likely to include at some point, some of my favourite bands and singers from the 1960s.

    I started this for nanowrimo 2009, left it alone for a bit decided to continue it in March 2010. As as result I'm not entirely sure where it's going at the moment. This version of the story is edited as little as possible and hasn't been beta read. I plan to revise it at some point in the future.
