Looking for a piece of weird fiction
August 19, 2021 4:42 AM   Subscribe

Years and years ago I encountered a piece of weird fiction on the Blue. It was a blog by a researcher investigating a strange land. It was very Annihilation-esque, but it was a different story, written as an online blog. Other plot points I remember: human-bird hybrid skulls, the strange land expanding in leaps and bounds, the story ending in a set of creepy underground caverns.

It's also none of the works listed in this question.

Is it The Sick Land?

I also came here to suggest Sick Land (previously).

Best answer: I think I borked up the link in my eagerness. http://thesickland.blogspot.com/2013/03/last-day.html

Hoo, Sick Land. That gave me nightmares for a fair while.

I'm so excited for this! I remembered this story but couldn't remember what it was called and have been trying to google for it for years! I really liked The Sick Land. Not perfect, but when it works, it's really strong.

Now I'm rereading the whole thing again!
