The phenomenon of PHARAOH transcends pop culture beyond its oceanographic pretenses. In compiling this work, I only hope that whatever darkness surfaced for them – those doomed people of PHARAOH – will not find me. Perhaps Dr. Simpson was right: some things should be left alone. Some of what you read is speculation, for who can know every hour of a day in a life? Most of this narrative I have extrapolated from personal journals, news clippings, online blogs, video diaries, and interviews with survivors. I have attempted to relate the events surrounding this later phase of what is known as the PHARAOH Project in hopes to recreate Annie and Stew just as they would have been: as friends and partners, even as sister and brother of a sense.
Yet, don’t get close to them. Annie and Stewart are dead and dead. This work will be the only thing tying them to PHARAOH before they were lost during the summer of 2003.
