Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore
After just a few nights working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything, instead 'checking out' impossibly obscure volumes from strange corners of the store, all according to some elaborate, long-standing arrangement with Mr. Penumbra. Concluding that store must be a front for something larger, Clay embarks on a complex analysis of the customers' behavior, and ropes his friends into helping to figure out just what's going on. But once they bring their findings to Mr. Penumbra, it turns out the secrets extend far outside the walls of the bookstore.
