Gentleman’s Clubs were fine establishments made famous by various books, radio play series’ and films. The clubs were places where explorers and adventurers would gather and tell stories of their adventures in exotic locations.
The Bell Club is different. Instead of being an adventurer’s club – it is an establishment that restricts its membership to those who have experienced unspeakable horror.
Successful membership requires the applicant to tell a story – and if the members find it disturbing enough – the applicant is granted access. It’s like a nascent support group for the traumatised.
No one judges or questions the stories told – because all the members have seen such things as no man can rationalise – and who are they to judge if a fellow storyteller is lying, mad or hallucinating?
By its nature the stories are set in the early years of the 20th Century, with male or female protagonists.
