Read ‘Misty’ issues 63 to 69. ‘The Dream House’ is a ghost story with a twist. ‘Uncle’s Nasty Hobby...’ sees another nasty relative cause creepy issues. It was okay. ’At The End Of The Rainbow’ is a soppy tale. ’Run, Rabbit, Run!’ is an okay tale of bullying and vengeance. ‘The Evil Dijnn’ sees a nurse meet a genie. Bad things happen. ‘An Eye For An Eye...’ sees a spoilt Roman woman persecute a family of leopards and she lives to regret it. This was historically inaccurate but very good.

One Bite Of The Apple...’ sees 2 horrible girls get got. ‘One Hour In Time’ sees an awful girl get got. No. ‘Perfect Specimen’ is a good tale of things preserved in amber. ‘Twin Catastrophes’ is a semi-incoherent tale of a lost sister. ‘Wolf Girl’ is a ridic tale of a former feral child. ‘Forever Winter...’ is a highly negative tale. ‘Cry Baby!’ is the tale of a bullied foster child and the core threat of her ‘sister’ and the unalloyed delight she takes when the feminine menace pays for her sins. This was excellent.

‘The Collector’ is the tale of a post box that is a sentient malevolent totem of evil. It causes travails that are taken seriously in the plot. This was okay. ‘The Disembodied’ is a tale without depth and meaning as a girl violates acceptable human behaviour and pays for it. ‘Welcome Home’ is about a firestarter and the darkening time she causes, that leads to predictable tragedy. ‘A Room Of Her Own’ is a tale of a fake haunting that assumes darker connotations. ‘Catch Me If You Can...’ sees a girl make a friend and then she faces horror. This was very good. ‘The Devil’s Dummy’ is about 2 girls, a ventriloquist and his dummy. It’s a tolerably creepy tale.

“Cackle, cackle, cackle.”

“The locals don’t hold with such places.”

“Let’s all have a cuppa, and calm down.”

“Dad’ll do his nut.”
