  • The Cornfield

    Don’t go into the cornfield!

    Annie isn’t frightened of the rows and rows of corn that grow behind her house. That is, until her grandmother warns her that the devil lies in wait, ready to gobble up any bad children that wander through the shadowy stalks.

    Fearing for her life, Annie promises to be a good girl and steer clear of the forbidden ground.

    Then Paul moves in next door.

    He’s cruel. He’s dirty. He curses. He is exactly the kind of boy that would be a succulent treat for the beast. So, when Paul wants to explore the train tracks just beyond the cornfield, the words of Annie’s grandmother snake through her doubtful mind. Could the old wives tale actually be true?

    Will she risk her life and soul to follow Paul, or will she heed the warning before it’s too late?

  • The Shunned House

    For many years, the narrator and his uncle, Dr. Elihu Whipple, have nurtured a fascination with an old abandoned house on Benefit Street. Dr. Whipple has made extensive records tracking the mysterious, yet apparently coincidental, sickness and death of many who have lived in the house for over one hundred years. They are also puzzled by the strange weeds growing in the yard, as well as an unexplained foul smell and whitish phosphorescent fungi growing in the cellar. There, the narrator discovers a strange, yellowish vapour in the basement, which seems to be coupled with a moldy outline of a huddled human form on the floor. The narrator and his uncle decide to spend the night in the house, investigating the possibility of some supernatural force.
