Alan Finch's Journal (1/3) is a note found in a safe along with the Key of Fear in Malden Center.
"July 17th 2080
Each day we press further and further into the wastes. Corwin is determined to find Ithaqua's den (as he is not from the station there must be another bunker nearby). I grow anxious. This seems wrong.
July 20th 2080
There was no bunker. Only a feeding ground. I swear to you I have never seen such horror in my life. Bodies strewn across the snow... torn limb from limb... and it wasn't just deer. What we track is more animal than man. A demon in man's skin. Corwin is gone but I know where he is. He seeks Ithaqua. I fear that he will not surive the encounter."
