The Hitch-Hiker / Room for the Night

Taking a queue from the English here in early December with a traditional ghost story double feature to get you ready for xmas-- and for obvious reasons you know perfectly well why Mr. Karswell approves! Also, you know both of these classic supernatural tales, each has been told countless times in countless variations and cultures, and in some ways both have slipped into the annals of "urban legend" terror-tory as well! From the 1960 issue of The World Around Us: The Illustrated Story of Ghosts #24 from Classics Illustrated, artwork by Georg Evans and Reed Crandall on "The Hitch-Hiker", Gray Morrow on "Room for the Night."

When His Number's Up...

Tempting fate was never so eerie, --well, maybe it has been-- in this surprisingly reckless entry from the December 1954 issue of Hand of Fate #25, art by the ever reliable Louis Zansky.

The Three Monkeys

Someone reminded me a few weeks ago via email that I had yet to upload the last of the stories from the April 1953 issue of Adventures into Darkness #9 --click the GCD link to get the other story titles and then just search the THOIA archive! Kind of surprising too, because it's a pretty good looking tale. (FYI: HAUNTED LOVE  fans note, one story from this issue wound up in issue #1.

Raise the Devil

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! Unfortunately mine was a little too low key for my tastes, it was so low key in fact, that I completely biffed on the annual THOIA Halloween post --and I'm only just now getting around to it 3 days later! Apologies to all! And I promised another tale from the Jan-Feb 1978 issue of House of Mystery #256, because after all, as the awesome Bernie Wrightson cover art clearly shows, this one is indeed a Halloween issue! And what better way to celebrate than to don an 'Ol Scratch costume and raise a little Hell too! It may be November, but everyone who comes around here knows that EVERYDAY IS HALLOWEEN, so keep the fires burning, the candy buckets overflowing, and the dead bodies hanging from poles-- as we once again enter into the horrifying House of Mystery!
