“Soft, dragging footsteps, growing steadily louder. Kyle held his breath. The footsteps grew louder – and he swore something brushed against his arm. It was ice cold. His heart was pounding. And then the footsteps seemed to pass them by….”
Dan’s first story is set in America, but the ritual carried out in this modern encounter tale comes from Japan. Tsuji-Ura [Sue-Gee Or-uh]. Better known as The Fortune Game. I LOVE this story. It’s all about how dangerous it can be to play around with trying to open doors into other worlds. In the second story we visit one of Hong Kong’s most notorious haunted houses, Dragon Lodge, and looking into its history and the paranormal experiences some of its residents have supposedly had there. Lynze takes us to Cuba, again. The story of a mother’s love may haunt her child forever. Wrapping it up, a tale of a possible alien abduction!

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.”
