Illusions, Lies, Truth Volume 3: In the Name of God, Part One
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Epilogue: Character Introductions—translated by lucathia (proofread by Taffygirl13, Minthe & Trespasserby)
From this volume onward, Illusions, Lies, Truth is finally taking on its original setup: the supernatural genre (are you sure this is really a supernatural story?). Well… at least there’s a supernatural studies society!
I really want to ask, are there any cases of authors out there writing horror stories who get scared to death by themselves?
When I was writing the chapter about the school wonders, it was mostly in the middle of the night. As a result, whenever I went to use the bathroom, I couldn’t help but turn my head to glance at the dark corridors and the living room, or I would lift my head to look at the small window high up in the bathroom. Each and every time, I would nervously realize that there wasn’t anything there at all!
Late at night, when I told a friend online that I was writing a ghost story and getting super scared, the friend hit me while I was down, immediately describing supernatural things he had experienced before—you’ll always have some friends like that in your life. Never tell them that you’re super scared of a ghostie, or that you’re currently on a diet because you’ll immediately receive a mountain of scary photos, plus links to food blogs and a bunch of invitations to go out to eat!
