Summary (IBList user synopsis):

On the morning of June 15th, Guy Burkhardt woke up screaming out of a dream... Today, Choco-bites is advertising an annoying commercial over the loudspeakers in the buildings all over town.

On the morning of June 15th, Guy Burkhardt woke up screaming out of a dream... Today, a truck rolls by, megaphones mounted on it's top: "Feckle Freezer. Buy a Feckle freezer! Feckle, Feckle, Feckle, Feckle, Feckle..."

On the morning of June 15th, Guy Burkhardt woke up screaming out of a dream... Today, Swanson runs up to Burkhardt, hope in his eyes, and then turns away dejectedly when he finds something missing in Burkhardt's eyes. Because Swanson alone is the keeper of a terrifying secret, one that will redefine the entire world.
