Biography Edit

Horace Gladstone was a scientist specializing in chemistry. He was working in Boston, Massachusetts in the early 1970s. Horace received a strange order for a supply of chemicals which he felt were complicated and possibly even dangerous. The order came from a man named Cyrus Longworth of Collinsport, Maine.

After receiving the request, Horace Gladstone made a personal visit to Collinsport to see Longworth. He warned him that he too once came too close to unlocking scientific truths that he felt were best left undiscovered, and advised Longworth against venturing down such a path. Naturally, Cyrus ignored Gladstone's warnings. [1]
