With nothing more than the sound of your thumping heart, you are invited to an appointment with all of the manifestations of evil. Here you will find fear-instilling tales of the Sinister and the Beastly … of the Macabre and Unimaginable Devilry … their themes ranging from Black Magic, Murder and Menace to Death and Disaster.
