Novelettes:
The Man in Crescent Terrace..........Seabury Quinn
     The thing used its spear like a woman testing cake with a broomstraw - only the "cake" was a human!
Twice Cursed..........Manly Wade Wellman
     Do you know of those who are afraid of memory shadows and those who never fear the devil except on a dark night?

Short Stories:
The Bogey Man Will Get You..........Robert Bloch
     That was what was nice about him - the mystery, the not knowing...
Chanu..........Jim Kjelgaard
     Look closely at his cultured face and you will discern to your amazement a snarling mouth and great fangs.
Dead Man's Shoes..........August Derleth [as Stephen Grendon]
     Those who are stricken with that curious and terrible hallucination should be thankful - for it warns of something far more terrible.
The Jonah..........Emil Petaja
     Remember the "Marie Celeste"?  Here's an explanation for that and other sea mysteries that could not be explained!
The Traveller..........Ray Bradbury
