" "the Doll" by Kevin McFarlane
"She was only with him once. Just that one time. It didn't make any
sense to Annie that afterward she could not quite get him out of her
head. What had he said—that she hadn't heard before? What, for that
matter, had he done—that she hadn't done with scores of others?
So, why, she thought, walking down Second Street was he lurking around
the corners of her mind and—more terrible still—the center of her heart...."
" The streets of Wheeler’s Heath were largely deserted after the early
evening’s spectacle an hour before. All that remained of the Grand
Inquisitor’s bonfire-cum-funeral-pyre was a twisting vine of smoke curling
upwards to the sky from a bloom of soot and ash in the town square.
The black, crisped skeletons of heretics slumped amongst the smoking
coals of their earthly doom."
"Remember what you most loved about scary movies when you were
a kid? The chill that ratcheted up your spine when a shape emerged
at the top of the stairs...
...just as the heroine's candle went out?
Remember that delicious tingle of dread?"

A Consideration of the Historical Werwulf

" In a vile attempt to curry favor with the gods, Lycanon (according to Virgil)
sacrificed an infant.The plan backfired when an outraged Zeus transformed
him into a frothing reflection of his true inner self: the first lycanthrope."
Review: Evan Kingsbury's Fire & Flesh
"" Spontaneous human combustion is one of those topics that horror
fans are genuinely intrigued by; dictionary entries don't satisfy us any
more than, say, episodes that treat the subject on a program like
Unsolved Mysteries. Its allure runs deeper than that for those of us
whose imaginations are--pardon the pun--sparked by the bizarre, the
unusual, and the anomalous."
