Synopsis
At the 1000-year anniversary of the founding of a European city, events documented in the town's history, The Crimson Folio, begin happening again, and the city realizes that the book is actually a book of prophecies. This is bad news for the descendent of the person who dies on the last page of the book.

Indexer Notes

Gene Reed doubts that the inks are by George Roussos and believes them to be the work of Meskin.
