"Crawling Death" & "A Skeleton in the Closet"

This will scrape the last few bloddy scraps of Witches' Tales Vol. 2 No. 1, February 1970 off the slab. This first story, "Crawling Death" is a reprint from Haunted Thrills No. 6, 1953. Table of Contents has this to say: "Up from the fetid holds, they swarmed, scenting blood, avid for the kill - amd men died screaming in agony!"

"A Skeleton in the Closet" first appeared in Strange Fantasy No. 7, 1953. Table of Contents says: "From beyond the grave comes this ghoulish tale of a ghost by the name of Prof. Spartacus Dubrow. Definitely not for the squeamish."

Just for kicks, here's an ad from the inside front cover. I'd check every box on this son of a bitch - including the "pot luck" special.

Next: "Witchcraft" & "Corpses Coast-To-Coast" from Weird Vol. 4 No. 3, June 1970. Until then, here's hoping you can lose yourself in at least a few precious hours of drunken, lustful abandon where responsibilities are forgotten and tomorrow is the land of fools.
