Painting 3 Revealed


A couple years ago I got a tour of John Jude Palencar's studio. Brian Zinn, one of the men who found the Cleveland key, noticed Painting 3 in the background of some video I shot there and wondered if the original had more detail that what was printing in the book. He was right. As you can see from this screen shot, there is much more detail around the borders. I wonder if you might find some new clues there...

Has the Houston Key Been Found?


A couple years ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Mark Locascio, who believes he knows exactly where a key is buried, in Houston. Byron Preiss, himself, even told him he was getting close.

The Original Goonies


It took a year for the first of Byron's keys to be found. But in 1983, three kids from Chicago - Eric Gasiorowski, Rob Wrobel, and David James - dug a big hole in Grant Park and unearthed a plexiglas cube, inside which was an ornate casque with a ceramic key, inside.

I met with Eric and Rob, in Chicago, in 2014. Along for the adventure was my friend, Charles Moore (who was with me back in 2005, when we knocked on J.D. Salinger's door). After we poked around Grant Park, Eric and Rob took us to Milwaukee in search of another key.

This is a clip from an early cut of our documentary, The Secret of Byron Preiss.
