The New York Orb was a newspaper that was in circulation at the time of There's Something in the Sea. There are 123 known issues published, and the paper actively published an evening edition. The only two known headlines are "Bloody Break-Out!" about Orrin Oscar Lutwidge's escape from Tollevue Mental Asylum and "Slaughter On The High Seas!!!".

the missing patient may have had an accomplice in the breakout, but
no other patients are missing. Police are investigating the whereabouts
of a visiting Irish psychiatrist who toured the facility earlier yesterday.

S.S. Nellie Bly — found by Icelandic Coast Guard
officers, lost at sea with 23 brutally murdered.

Euro Fugitives Turn Savage
NEW YORK — Last night, an America cargo freighter
was found adrift by the Icelandic Coast Guard after issuing
an S.O.S. Aboard the S.S. Nellie Blye, the officers found
drugs, propaganda, smuggled firearms — and a crew of
revolutionary terrorists, every single one of them dead.

As Guards explored decks literally slick with blood, it

quickly became clear that the victims — and proable per-
petrators — were members of the European Front, a leftist
revolutionary group that had flead Paris after police investi-
gated their role in inciting a street riot.

The gruesome savagery of the murder suggests that the

slaughter might have been fueled by drugs, claims an
American official who spoke with us confidentially.

"These leftist groups are often havens of rampant drug abuse," said the official. "We're just
lucky they didn't unleash this kind of violence on American streets during one of their acid
binges." American victims include captain Casey Ferrence, 52, a dishonorably discharged
former Naval officer who appears to ahve turned to illegal smuggling. Officials have not yet con-
firmed the death of an unregistered passenger, Mark G. Meltzer of Montauk Point, New York.
