‘It’s poor judgment’, said Grandpa ‘to call anything by a name. We don’t know what a hobgoblin or a vampire or a troll is. Could be lots of things. You can’t heave them into categories with labels and say they’ll act one way or another. That’d be silly. They’re people. People who do things. Yes, that’s the way to put it. People who *do* things.

Inky’s Take: Halloween! I love the shivers from a good scream, the heavy ink of a moonless night, and scary stories… utterly orgasmic! Horror movies? Those I usually watch, all the lights on, peeking around a pillow screaming, ‘don’t go into that room’ or ‘why aren’t you running? Run! Now!’ but of course they never do.
Me? Speedy Gonzales would be left – In. The. Dust! Arriba, Arriba… Andalay, Andalay.. you don’t have to tell me twice!
