About the Story

You awake with a start. You're sitting in your favourite seat in the Old Bodleian's Upper Reading Room, and everything seems to be exactly as it should be. There’s the copy of 'Shadows Out of Time' that you were reading before you nodded off.

But something's not right. Where are all the other readers? Where's... anybody? Among the dreaming spires of central Oxford, you must explore the world around you alone. Or perhaps you're not alone at all...

Produced as a printable/PDF gamebook for Halloween 2018 and made available at, adapted for use as interactive fiction.
