15: Voodoo Nightmare

“One day I’m gonna die – and I’m gonna take the whole town with me.”

A quote from today’s first story. Our first tale is the legend of Louisiana voodoo priestess Julia Brown’s curse in 1915. Did she take a whole town with her when she died? And does her ghost still haunt the Manchac swamp? Our second story revolves around the Hmong culture’s belief in – and fear of – the tsog tsuam, “the evil spirit who smothers.” Can this creature quite literally scare you to death? Can a nightmare kill you?

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted): 
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened.  Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
