Nolan’s brother Morris has escaped from the psychiatric institution where he lived. Nolan thinks that this could have to do with the disappearance of a friend during their childhood, Eddie Price.

· The chapbook had a print run of #250 and the lettered hardcover #26.

The story starts as follows:
I don’t know who I’m writing this for, can’t say who I expect to read it. Not the police, anyway. I don’t know what happened to my brother, and I can’t tell them where he is. Nothing I could put down here would help them find him. And anyway, this isn’t really about his disappearance… although it does concern a missing person, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think the two things had anything to do with each other. I have never told anyone what I know about Edward Prior, who left schoool one October day in 1977, and never arrived home for chilli and baked potatoes with Mom.
