He's been hired to meet the locals and record their oral histories for the town's time capsule. The unfolding history of the town mixes folklore, paranormal, mystery and humor.
Thomas Edward M had a plan to pause his Slumberland work and travel to a job interview, but that plan gets canceled by a fresh batch of raging storms over the island.

Lorde contributes her own tale, involving a close encounter with the Sandy Specter, long ago.
