The Horrorwalker visited Amanda Romero...
On a dark and rainy Northern Virginia night in May of 2016.
She will never forget that night of frights and revelations.
The tale of her personal encounter with the mysterious creature will be told at another time.
But the tale she was forced to read from the Horrorwalker's tome can be told now.
Still shaken, hours after the encounter, she finally put the words in her memory to paper.
And here, for your quick perusal, is a short excerpt...
Here, in this place...
The Year Of The Mosquito!
THE YEAR OF THE MOSQUITO (AN EXCERPT)
(Citrus County, Florida -- A.D. 2066)
...Oh yes, child, there was a time, long ago, when it was safe to walk outside in the sunshine without the Protection Suits.
There was a time of teeming life, of electricity, of tourists, of places to buy food, of community... and then it all ended when the mutations began.
Yes, my grandchild, it is indeed true what you mommy told you about us being long since forgotten by our government and left down here to die off.
Nobody above the section of the Pest Free Wall above Florida dares to come down here and risk being infected by these... goddamn mosquitoes!...
