The letter wasn't addressed to John. The return address, however, was his. Not that he had sent the letter. He would never have mailed anything off without a zip code, and he certainly wouldn't have wasted postage attempting to contact "The Palace of the Day in the Kingdom of the Night.”

A blood-red droplet of sealing wax clung to the back of the letter like a wad of chewing gum on the underside of a school desk. As John turned the letter back over, he noticed faint watermarks on the envelope. Crescent moons.
John could almost see the mailman rolling his eyes as he tossed the letter into the mailbox along with a heap of bills, sale flyers, pizza coupons, and a glossy new underwear catalog.
