MORROW ROAD

THERE IS A ROAD IN ALGONAC, MICHIGAN IN WHICH TO DRIVE DOWN IT AT
NIGHT IS TABOO. TREES LINE THE ROAD. THEY GROW TOGETHER AT THE
TOPS, FORMING A TUNNEL RUNNING THE LENGTH OF THE ROAD. AS A RESULT
IT IS ESPECIALLY DARK AT NIGHT. MANY A WEARY TRAVELLER DRIVING IN HIS
CAR AT NIGHT DOWN THIS ROAD HAS SEEN THINGS WHICH WOULD STIFLE THE IMAGINATION.
UNDESCRIBABLE BEASTS WHICH GLOW IN THE DARK ATTACK PASSING CARS. KNOWLEDGEABLE TRAVELLERS WILL JOURNEY MANY MILES OUT
OF THEIR WAY TO AVOID TRAVELING MORROW ROAD.
