Two new pieces for the Lovecraft Project Phase 2.
For the story "Old Bugs", written at the onset of prohibition, and set in a future where prohibition is still the law. An old drunk in a speakeasy/drug den occasionally has flashes of clarity about his former life. These moments increase as a young student finds his way to the establishment and attempts to have his first drink.
"The White Ship" is an allegory about a man who discovers new, magic lands on a white ship, culminating in a mystical island existing outside of time with no suffering or death. Not satisfied, he ventures further and falls over a waterfall. Instead of dying, he wakes up back where he started, and never sees the magic white ship again.
