Space Shuttle Log
Log of the Nemetz Space Shuttle:
July 14, 9:20 p.m.
We left for space early this morning. It is night now. We are within the range of the moon. It is beautiful up here. We will be on the moon in a few minutes.
July 15, 8:00 p.m.
We landed successfully during the night. We thought we saw some sort of golden-colored castle-like building as we flew by. We went to investigate but found nothing.
July 16, 10:19 p.m.
During the collecting of moon rocks one of the astronauts, Botz to be precise, found what seemed like a skull with two large pointy fangs to the sides buried under in the moon dirt. It’s nothing pretty to look at.
July 20, 8:00 p.m.
Henry, the leader in charge of landmarking claimed that there was a golden-colored building within 10 miles of our location. We went and found nothing. Must have been one of his tricks.
July 22, 9:15 p.m.
Henry stubbornly claimed to have seen the building again and went out at night but hasn’t returned in almost two days.
July 24, 10:00 p.m.
We heard screaming in the distance, it sounded like Henry. We sent our men but found nothing.
August 6, 11:00 p.m.
It has been almost 2 weeks and a lot of things happened. Henry was right, there is a building. We saw it flashing and disappeared and reappeared again many times till it became solid.
We went and visited it. As hard as it seems there was a tall man of about 30 years old wearing a suit who called himself Sed. He greeted us kindly and invited us to his home.
We asked if he has seen Henry. He said he saw a man from out of his castle fall inside a narrow deep crater. We later went and found nothing.
Over dinner, I noticed that one of his servants had the same scar on his foot that Henry had one time when he stepped on a nail in the academy. I had no way of telling since he didn’t have Henry’s body or face.
August 10, 10:06 p.m.
We left out of Sed’s castle. He was a strange unpleasant man. Four of our men have disappeared as they went out last evening, leaving only me and Polanski. Sed’s castle has disappeared once more.
August 13, 6:00 p.m.
I’m left alone. When I woke up Polanski last night was found dead outside the shuttle door. His body dried of blood. I think I know what happened. And I’m sure I’m next.
If this is found. bring in all the military. I left a map pointing to the exact location of the castle. Bomb it down. Kill everyone and everything in sight.

Brian’s Banal Belvedere:
This starts off strong. It has a nice title and sub-title. It then fades rather quickly.
Sed seems cool. Since he lives in a castle alone I understand how he needed additional people to help him keep the castle in tip-top shape.
It appears as if he sustains himself on blood. I could see how the supply for that is quite low on the frickn moon. Does he have a blood bank of people stored away somewhere? Does he use synthetic blood when the real thing is not available?
And just so you know, the message, this story was never found. Ok?
