14th Foot washes up on the banks of BC

Another human foot washes ashore in BC.

This one is not in a running shoe but in a hiking boot.  This has been going on since 2007, and authorities once considered it could be linked to foul play, but now think they're all from people who have committed suicide.  We've followed this story on LoS, with a bit too much levity perhaps.

Ultimately, it's a strange, yet sad, story.  Not much to add, just keeping current.

"The Ice Mine" by Steven Adkins


I'm pleased to announce that my novella, The Ice Mine, is now available for pre-order from the Whisk(e)y Tit website.

I'm really grateful to my editor Miette for all her hard work and for her faith in my writing.  It took me until the age of 47, but it's a great feeling and worth the wait!  Please consider ordering a copy or even two; books are great gifts and supporting independent publishers is important, self-interest aside!


Description


Ric Bream was a happily married college professor with two adoring children. But wounds from the past left him restless, weakening his will against the lure of the poppy. As Ric’s addiction gained momentum, his career and marriage collapsed.  Alone and restless, Rick attempts detox at home. After weeks of hallucinations and nightmares, he comes out clean. Now he must struggle to stay that way, in a futurist society whose priorities conflict with his values. Wrestling with boredom and lacking a sense of purpose, Rick sifts through his belongings, stumbling upon an old collection of books: the relations of crackpot explorers and madmen who have searched in vain for a mysterious society dubbed, “The Ice Mine.”


The books reawaken Ric’s interest in searching for the Ice Mine, a place of questionable existence, accessible only along a treacherous path fraught with deadly enemies—a trail blazed by alleged lunatics and liars. Follow Ric on his journey of mind, body, and soul as he encounters exquisitely detailed mythical landscapes inhabited by never-before-seen creatures, deadly forces of nature, and lurking sinister presences. Will facing his inner demons as he struggles to survive his journey lead Ric to the fabled Shangri-La or something else entirely?

3 feet high and rising

We have probably written all there is to write regarding the facts surrounding the be-sneaker'd feet that have been washing up on the shores of Vancouver Island and environs for several years now, so we won't spill any ink on this latest, except to point out that yes, another foot has made an appearance:

Something we didn't know:
Vancouver Island is also well known for its Sasquatch sightings.
For well over a decade, residents on or near Vancouver Island have reported hearing strange howls during the day and night. Some have even claimed to have seen one of the creatures.
The Sasquatch, we should point out, is also known as....Bigfoot.
