just to make sure that i had everything clear myself, i went through the contest entries last night and made up this quick reference/check list so that i could remember who creepily crafted which terrifying tale. here it is. check it over to make sure that YOU got a chance to read each one of these horrifying yarns yourself...
adam’s story (posted under the blog heading "the perhapanauts scary story halloween contest")
was about the last woman to be hung for her crimes in new york state.
was about a haunted high school and the janitor that everyone knew about but him.
was about a fevered vision/dream he had about his wife tickling a giggling troll dude.
was about a post-death visitation from her beloved Papa Joe--her grandfather--come to properly say goodbye.
Daddy’s Little Girl
was just freakin’ creepy and I don’t want to talk about it anymore.
was about a man on the beach awaiting the return of the woman he loves.
Daisy was a Good Dog
was about something landing in the nearby woods, and his wonderful dog...and stars.
was about guilt and regret and the things that follow you through life.
it was also about two pages too long... (ha! jk!)
was about...umm...bugs. cockroaches. yeah.
was about where we come from and the ghosts that haunt our history.
was about finding friends and about the haunted house from his youth.
Prelude-The Man Who Lives Forever
