It’s almost Halloweentime! And, if you go into Halloweentime withdrawal during the rest of the year, now is the time to sign up for the Secret Pumpkin exchange. In the middle of April, as far away from October as you can get, you can send and receive spooky goodness. (Don’t sign up unless you’re serious, though. You don’t want to aggravate Halloween lovers.)
It’s also time for ghost stories, and there’s a very good, detailed one about Bobby Mackey’s, one of our local haunts.
Rowlf the Dog encourages the mood with a dramatic reading from the Haunted Mansion’s narration.
Sometimes, truth is spookier than the best ghost story. In Mexico, they’ve found a secret maze of tunnels under a city; meanwhile, an ancient Egyptian stele seems to feature a Cthulhu-like illustration.
