It feels like Halloween again...

It is always gratifying when Halloween's Birthday season comes around. One begins noticing the societal manifestations unfolding {even from the ides of August}, from receiving various catalogs in the post [1][2], to displays incrementally bearing fruition at markets and stores. Though Halloween, per se, is more of a mindset and state of being, it is most pleasant to observe the evocations resurfacing once again, knowing full well the dancing specters, ghouls and goblins, devils and beasties, venture forth forever more.

In honor of the onset of the Helloween season, I present the above 'scary stories' with art featuring the incomprable Stephen Gammell, and a narrator which reminds this writer quite a bit of Zombo.
