This is my attempt at a chronological list of events mentioned in Frank Belknap Long’s short story, “The Hounds of Tindalos.” I am including the events of the ‘present’ only – not those mentioned as being in the distant past.
Here be spoilers:
May 1: Chalmers rents the apartment in Partridgeville, New York.
June 20: (Day estimated, time likely after dark); Chalmers takes the drug Liao & sees through time.
June 21: Sometime between Frank leaving Chalmers’ yesterday, and the time Frank arrives in the morning of this day, Chalmers has removed all the furniture from his apartment. Chalmers & Frank plaster the now empty room.
July 4: Evening; Low conversation heard in Chalmers’ apartment.
July 5: 2 am earthquake damages plaster in Chalmers’ apartment. By 7 am, Chalmers is dead. Chalmers’ body discovered at 9 am.
