In prison, you hear a lot of stories. Whether they are from criminals trying to make themselves more intimidating or men sharing fragments of their pasts in an attempt to piece it all back together. Some of the stories are horrifying, some violent, but the ones that scare you the most are the ones that are true.
Like the one about Albert Pike, the mild-mannered prison librarian that, despite his age, everyone seems to fear. Or the one about the ouija board carved into the floor of the prison, the man who talks to other people in his cell at night, even though he’s alone or the strange punishments delivered to the wicked, by those who are wickeder still.
Those stories truly haunt you, because though the bars keep the prisoners in, they don’t keep the dark thing out.
