Crazy Monday

It's been a crazy, busy Monday... and it ain't over yet.

No post today. Tomorrow... I promise.
Until then, here's a little something to creep you out.

  3. It's actually a Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) work called "The Mysterious Stranger".

    Twain actually wrote three versions of this story, each unfinished and each involving the character of "Satan".

    The first version is called "The Chronicle of Young Satan" and tells of the adventures of Satan, the sinless nephew of the biblical Satan, in an Austrian village in the Middle Ages. The story ends abruptly in the middle of a scene involving Satan entertaining a prince in India, suggesting Twain died before he finished writing it.

    The second version he attempted to write is known as Schoolhouse Hill which involves Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer and their adventures with Satan, referred to in this version as "No. 44, New Series 864962", and is set in America.

    The third version, called No. 44, the Mysterious Stranger: Being an Ancient Tale Found in a Jug and Freely Translated from the Jug, returns to Medieval Austria and tells of No. 44's mysterious appearance at the door of a print shop and his use of heavenly powers to expose the futility of mankind's existence. This version also introduces an idea Twain was toying with at the end of his life involving a duality of the "self", one being the "Waking Self" and the other being the "Dream Self".

    Pretty creepy stuff. Not a work that many people have even heard of.
