Sneak Peek: Episode 19 Goes Live Friday, June 4th

Latest Exquisite Corpse Adventure Episode Written by Shannon Hale

In our last episode of The Exquisite Corpse Adventure 18 by Gregory Maguire, our group discovered that the light was a regional meeting of the evil aliens who were trying to do them in. Out of their hideous costumes, the aliens appeared like floating half-cooked poached eggs. Their prisoner, a flickering hologram of Genius Kelly, the pig, revealed that the memory they sought was not an object, but the bond between their heart and mind. The hologram also provided a clue as to the whereabouts of another piece of Roberta.

In Episode 19 by Shannon Hale, who do our heroes see under the chestnut tree? What happens to Hathi, Sybil, and Genius Kelly, the pig? What about Roberta's legs?
