Undercore is gone. Maybe for good. It's unclear whether the dimensional rift that winked my world out of existence was caused by a black hole. If it was - there won't be any going back.

Shame about the Sapp family. Carolyn lost her husband, invested everything she had into his memorial, and then... like I said. Gone.

Not sure anyone will see this, or where I'll eventually land. I've been thinking of living low-tech for a while, maybe someplace fueled more by magic than science. Maybe. In the meantime, I've arranged to have communications forwarded, at least until I find a place to settle.

Wish me luck.

If only.

Why is unclear. Some say the amulet's power …
