Monster Byte: Town Abuzz about Bladel’s Disappearance

By Carrie Cuinn

INNSMOUTH, MA – While Innsmouth Police continue the search for Kyle Bladel, missing since last week, townspeople have freely volunteered their time, and their opinions.

“Kyle was a very sweet boy and very polite, too. He never yelled or ran around my shop like other children do,” said Lisa Whaley-Hapsburg of the local Stop-N-Shop. “He waited for his mother to offer him a toy or candy, and when he found one he liked, they’d buy it. No …

Letters to the Editor Regarding Unexpected Treasure

RE: Survey yields unexpected treasure

Whatever happened to respecting the dead?  Does no one remember how many sailors and women have perished out on Black Reef?

In my day, when we found anything left from a shipwreck, or clearly from historical times, we left it there, out of respect for the dead. But now, Arkham’s divers are just pulling stuff off the reef, without even bothering to find out why the necklace is there. What if it …

A brief letter in response to the author of The Big Book of Supernatural Americana

by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Dear Editors,

I read with interest the interview that appeared recently in your paper about Janette Zang, author of The Big Book of Supernatural Americana. Miss Zang mentioned an incident that occurred in the 1860s, when a rain of stones fell on the house of a young woman named Katja Rilke. Miss Zang makes two crucial mistakes in the telling of this story: she says no other similar phenomena occurred in the area after the incident …

Don’t Use Federal Funds to Pay for Devil Reef Monitoring

by Mari Ness

I couldn’t believe it when I read that NOAA had given Arkham University a grant to monitor Devil’s Reef. With the economy collapsing, crime rates accelerating, and unemployment rates rising, this is what the federal government is choosing to waste its money on?

I’ve been fishing in the harbor for the last twenty years, and I can assure you, Innsmouth Harbor and Devil’s Reef have plenty of fish. And ghost crabs, and clams, and shrimp, and other …

Don’t Wait to Make Devil Reef a No Take Zone

by Mari Ness

After hearing that Arkham University has received a grant to monitor and study Devil’s Reef, I headed out to the reef to do some scuba diving to see what all the fuss is about. And, wow. It’s an incredibly beautiful place. Scuba diving there is like discovering a new world, one dark and strange.

But as I peered into little nooks and crannies of the reef, marveling at the great white tube worms, and dozens of tiny …

Letter to the Editor: Hoodies

By Deborah Walker

Dear Editor,

Am I the only one to be disturbed by the preponderance of hooded children on our fair Innsmouth streets? Why, oh why, do our children feel the need to cover their faces.

I believe the term used is hoodies. It is a fashion that has been condemned throughout the whole of the UnitedStates of America. I am disturbed to see many of our older children following this unwholesome trend.

I am ninety-eight years old. It …

Too Much Sierra Coverage

by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I am sick and tired of reading stories about the late pop singer Sierra. It seems every day, there is some new, often distasteful, article about her. In just a few days, we’ve heard that Sierra was a drug addict, was haunted by the spirit of silent movie star Filipa Darlo, and her footwear, of all things, was cursed.

Healthcare, global climate and international conflicts, yet the Innsmouth Free Press and the Arkham Observer insist on publishing …
