*A transcript of an audio tape recording found in the trash bin of unnamed noted Journalist and Author:

"To whom it may concern ...

I took a pill--just now. It wasn't all that hard to get me to do it. After all, it's all gone to shit ... all of it. What's the use, right?

Regardless, the guy in the bar said it would take effect rather quickly and when it did, I wouldn't remember much. But after all, who wants to remember, when remembering isn't all that great anyways?

It's been five minutes now, and I don't really feel much--maybe a bit light-headed but other than that, I'm aces.

The guy in the bar gave me a whole vial, but in the end, he said one was all I would need to "get there." He even used the air quotes, so who was I to judge. Besides, "getting there" sounded nice.

We were in the dark back corner of the club on 27th Street. The whole place was dark, pretty much empty, and we weren't overheard, I think. Although the only other guy at the bar was looking at me suspiciously.

Can't say now if he followed me home or not. Regardless, I've just jumped in--head first."

*A few minutes pass without a word ... silence is all that's heard on the tape.

"I ... I ... uh! Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!"

*Piercing screams go on for 8 to 10 minutes ... the voice seems to be in sheer agony at first, but it can also be pleasure mistaken for agony. Finally, after yet another brief bout of silence, the voice continues to speak clearly, passing from the unintelligible to clear words spoken slowly and calmly, as if the latter episode hadn't even occurred:

"Where the hell am I? What is this place? What is this desk? Who is that man in those pictures atop the mantelpiece over there?

I need to get out of here ... pronto. I need to find more ... more ... and more of what's in this vial."

*The rest of the recording is void of anything else other than some rustling sounds. The office in which the recorder was found was vandalized considerably ... the walls covered in red paint. The only letter readable here and there across the walls, the carpet and the desk was the letter V.
