Explosion Unexplained

An old house exploded last Tuesday night.  The home, which had been abandoned for several years, was completely destroyed by the blast, the cause of which is unknown.

“The gas lines have been turn3ed off for years so unless some strange mistake was made, we have no idea what caused the explosion,” said Sheriff Butch Anderson at the scene.

“There was a two-tone brown, 1983 Buick Regal with expired plates, liscense number U81-OIC, found abandoned nearby on the Pinebox Cutoff Road.  We are asking that anyone with information about this explosion or this car contact us at 1-800-55-4357.”

This article refers to a short story by Trey Gorden in the Buried Tales of Pinebox Anthology called Mother.  Trey is a native East Texan, who spent his youth tramping around in the Piney Woods pretending to be, depending on his mood, either Legolas or Nyarlathotep.  After living among the Misty Mountains and damp cafe’s off the coutnry’s upper left hand orner for several years, he recently returned to East Texas and is now a graduate student in English at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches.  He has decided that, if he can’t be Legolas or Nyarlathotep, he’ll settle for being a college professor.
