This Friday through to next Tuesday (Mar 17 through Mar 21, 2017), will feature a couple of stories that we usually feature on the Halloween weekend, “Take Me Out to the Ballpark” and “A Dark Horse”. But, March is a pretty scary month, too, what with its usual crazy weather, so we figured, why not feature them now?
“Take Me Out to the Ballpark” features human evil, in the form of an apparently harmless person who has a very dark streak of evil, and who preys on the innocent.
“A Dark Horse” features supernatural evil, in the form of a bookie/loan shark with a dual personality, part human and part inhuman, who preys on addicted gamblers
