THE LUMINARY

Pass through the Gates of Horn and Ivory and transport yourself into a world of Dreams.  A world of Wonders.  Of Mysteries.  Dramas unfold within these hallowed halls.  Tales hitherto untold.  Tales told a thousand times over, given new life and seen as if for the very first time.  The Luminary is a theater like no other—for there is little more marvelous than when stagecraft and sorcery unite. For those of you who have never made pilgrimage the Luminary Theater in Edinburgh, I cannot recommend it highly enough.  I can only suppose that you never heard tell of it till now.  For those of you who have, I know that no more need be said.  Whether you are devotee of screen or stage, bookworm or bibliophobe,...

DR. SCHWEINEHUND'S APPRAISAL SERVICE

 I have been using Dr. Schweinehund's services for a very, very long time, and I cannot recommend him strongly enough, which is why in this busy season, we are featuring him here at Greyburne's.  Dr. Schweinehund's Appraisal Service uses methods unavailable anywhere else and provides a level of thoroughness and expertise nigh unheard of.  The good Doctor is an unraveler of mysteries.  A discoverer of hidden truths.  He is an artist, having donned the guise of a simple man of science.  Leave with him whatever object about which you wish to know, and when you return, he will have for you ready and waiting an itemized appraisal that is guaranteed to answer whatever question you might have, as well as...

TAIL TEA

Hey everyone!  It's Halloween, so I decided to try to find something fitting for the occasion.  This week I'm featuring Tail Tea, a rather interesting offering from the Twisted Birch Tea Room--home of Eleanor's Extra Ominous Earl Grey, if you didn't know.  In case the packaging isn't a dead giveaway, Tail Tea isn't the sort of thing you'd serve your friends.  Or acquaintances.  Or anyone you like, really.  It's more of a... prank tea?  Revenge tea?  Hilarious-but-God-don't-let-it-happen-to-me tea?   Essentially if you drink it, you sprout a tail.  And from what I hear, not always the same kind of tail either.  Some people get dogs.  Some people get foxes.  Some people get monkeys.  I guess if it was prehensile it wouldn't be that bad.  You could...

SHADE CANDLES

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for our weekly feature! This week, I picked up a product from Starling’s Sorcery Supplie—one of their patented Shade Candles. The concept is pretty simple: light one, and if it blows out and the seal breaks, you can be sure that there is someone in the room you can’t see. Creepy, huh? But it is almost Halloween! - Molly

ILL NEWS IS AN ILL GUEST

Okay here’s something. Maybe giving one of these Omen Exposers to Mr. Greyburne wasn’t such a good idea after all. He took it yesterday and it popped just about immediately. You can see what he got. Now, he’s been super up-tight about the whole Wrinkle thing (which you should already know about if you’ve been following along). Maybe it just means that he’s got a broken watch. But he doesn’t seem to think so... yikes. Anyway, I’m not so sure I buy into the whole fortune-telling thing, but if it is legit, maybe it’s time to start worrying.- Molly
