A Mysterious Delivery

Remember a few weeks ago when I got a special delivery in the mail? Well today I got something totally bizarre in the mail! Like holy crap awesome this is so weird cool.

I got an old beat up copy of Life of Nathaniel Hawthorne by Moncure D. Conway in the mail. Two of the pages were bookmarked with these strange drawings, that seem to be circling words and letters. I tried to make the images large enough so that if you click them maybe you can read the pages (click the image and then click it again to zoom in more) and see if you can figure out what they say. I'm going to try to figure it out too!

If you think you know that it says you can head over to Shay's facebook page and let him know, you are also welcome to make a YouTube video about your theories and label it "Nightshade" so Shay sees it! Feel free to leave your theories here as well!

Participation gives you the chance to become a character in the upcoming prequel that will be given out for free to those of us that pre-order Nightshade! You can pre-order it here.

So what do you think the pages are saying?


  1. Very cool...I love meta-games like this. Not being familiar with the story/book, the messages are out of context, but are still very interesting. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more info as it comes. ;)

  2. I don't know what they are saying but that is really neat. How original. I would normally be, "Oh no not my books." But those drawings are really neat and you can still make out the words!

    Nice randomness!
