The wind whistled a soulful dirge as it danced lazily around the dark neighbourhood, dodging rooftops and treetops. It ruffled the leaves, shook them spitefully off the tree limbs, and arrayed them haphazardly on the parched ground in a carpet of brown. The sun had blazed with fury in the afternoon.  Now, the wind had taken the reins, chilling the starless night, and causing men’s hearts to stir within them. Stir, and boil, until their own self-loathing drowned them.

Short Fiction: The Schizophrenic Camera of Professor McGraw (Part I)

By tofunmi.omowumi on Wed, 27/08/2014 - 19:56

In the first part of this haunting piece by Tofunmi Omowumi, we are transported back in time to a strange lake captured by a professor's camera. If you're a writer and wish to be featured on the ZODML blog, send your pitches to editorial[at]zodml[dot]org.


We recall the conflagration of the University Staff Quarters in London in 1920. The renowned photojournalist, artist, and academician Professor Jefferson C. McGraw was confirmed dead in the fire outbreak on May 6. The fatal incident also claimed the lives of several notable scholars, including Dr. Marshall Kinston, a psychiatrist and close friend of Professor McGraw. It has been argued by some that the location of McGraw's most celebrated photo series "House of Demons" was documented somewhere in the professor's later works which vanished in the fire. Fifty years later, a group of young researchers led by the archaeologist Fred N. Monks discover parts of what are considered to be the memoirs of Professor McGraw.
