This week’s preview of Hic & Hoc‘s unsolved mysteries anthology, Unknown Origins & Untimely Ends, is taken from a story by Danielle Chenette. She tells the story of “the hum,” a phenomenon involving a persistent droning sound only about 2% of the population can hear in certain areas. The most publicized area where this occurs in the United States is in Taos, New Mexico. There is no scientific explanation for the sound at this time.
I have been to Taos, New Mexico and unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, never experienced the hum. There have been many reported incidents of people hearing a hum in and around Bristol, UK as well. Has anyone who reads this blog experienced this? I’d love to hear more about it.
We’re very happy to be able to include Danielle’s piece in our anthology and I can’t wait to see hers and all of our other artists’ stories in print! More information on where to get your own copy of the anthology is coming very soon.
