I was reading through some articles and websites about Masquerade tonight and came across this quote that seems so relevant to us today as it was to those back when he was receiving tens of thousands of letters from searchers in 1979-81:
For the most part, Kit Williams seemed enchanted, if a bit baffled, by the breadth and depth of mistaken conviction his fans were able to generate. ”They are far more complex than anything I had imagined,” he told the New York Times Magazine in 1981, of Masqueraders’ wide-ranging solutions, ”and yet they fit the book. It’s a scientific principle that if you want something to work badly enough, you organize the facts so that it does.”
A little something different: I will be reading an excerpt from the book "Quest for the Golden Hare" - the book describing the treasure hunt "Masquerade". This excerpt will go over the period after the hare was found, similar to the post-Forrest Fenn treasure hunt we are in right now. Puzzles and riddles later! Priddle Monday for June 8, 8PM eastern, 5PM pacific.
