Echo Harbor keeps its own dating conventions, separate from those of the city. Inquiries into it result in a great many missing graduate students, but those that have survived to report back say that citizens are concerned that if the new year followed the old in predictable fashion, “the things will know where to find it.”

This is probably nonsense, but as Echo Harbor seems to have missed out on what would, in our calendar, be 1681, 1699, 1840, and 1963, one must exercise caution.
