Dan’s top story is one of the scarier tales we have heard in awhile. A man in Missouri is pulled into a dark mystery in his new home when his nightmares become real. If you have an old cellar this one might keep you from going down into it for quite awhile. The second story is historical A 19th century primarily-London based tale of the boogeyman known as Spring-Heeled Jack. Very odd and interesting. It’s hard to figure out exactly what the hell was going with this entity that gave a lot of kids – and quite a few grownups as well it seems – nightmares back in Victorian England. Lynze has her two tales of terror as usual. Her first takes place in some military barracks with an entity that shows up during a party. Then to wrap it all up, Ms. Martha, a spirit living in a historical exhibit, makes it known that she doesn’t appreciate  anyone touching her things.

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.”
