I'm trying to track down a self-published story or novella I read online roughly a decade ago, possibly on someone's Livejournal, written in the form of a series of emails or newsgroup posts exchanged by adult fans of an series of British children's fantasy novels (a bit like Narnia, but more of an obscure cult thing). The author of these novels was a mysterious eccentric whose work had gradually descended into gibberish, possibly masking some hidden, occult significance. The fans' efforts to solve the mystery brought them together in real life, but the tone darkened as the story went on. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

    It's not a close match, but it sounds a lot in overall concept like House of Leaves. A lot of the actual details are different, however. – Chris Sunami Feb 18 '19 at 20:10
  • Definitely not that, but thanks—I haven't read House of Leaves, but going by the synopsis it may well have influenced the story I'm thinking of. – Jake Wilson Feb 19 '19 at 0:46
