My name is RW Gates; it is my sincerest wish that World Codex will entertain, enlighten, and create intrigue for all those who are willing to challenge the parameters of everyday reality. Included within this series of books will be several previously unpublished works explicitly placed to be world-altering by their nature and design. Between the Codex pages are many accounts of events that have never before been brought to light or explored by the reading world as a whole. The World Codex staff has worked diligently to illustrate the impetus and inspiration for its development, as well as to captivate the imagination of each and every reader who delves into its offerings. World Codex has grown into an extensive research project that I have supported and facilitated for more than a decade now. I feel that the time has finally come to share its revelations with the public at large. The stories and documented accounts that are pressed upon its pages run the gamut from thought-provoking and illuminating exposés to tales of mystery and drama. They have been collected, collated, and compiled by a concerted network of dedicated individuals, who have worked tirelessly to bring this literary publication to the world stage.
