Psychedelic Electronic Journey (U.S.A.)
In April 1974, 17-year-old Londoner Molly Kingston disappeared. Three years later, her family received a letter, apparently written by Molly, stating that she had “attained the highest state of spiritual bliss”, and that her “dreams” had been “harvested” by a “celestial organization” called Penumbra. The letter went on to claim that Molly, and her “spirit twin” Ladybird had acquired the long-sought-after ability to infiltrate the dreams of those whose dreams are “ripe for harvest”.
Over the next two weeks, six young women from in and around Salisbury, Wiltshire, disappeared. All six, who were apparently strangers to each other, left identical letters revealing that Molly and Ladybird had “come for” them, and that they “joyfully” had “surrendered” to the “bliss that is Penumbra”. Neither Molly, nor any of the young women, were ever seen again.
