The Wellington Manuscript is a short story following the account of a former professor through the nightmarish streets of New Orleans.
"The following document was found posthumously in the cell of Dr. George Wellington, Professor Emeritus of Philology, Kingsport University, executed May 5, 1953, at Louisiana State Penitentiary. The handwriting was surprisingly meticulous, apparently the product of a calm and composed mind, despite the clear break from reality Dr. Wellington suffered the final years of his life."
