Get ready to chuckle and to shiver - sometimes both at once! Within these pages you'll encounter situations that are scary or amusing, but always unforgettable. Here are just three of them: when blundering kidnappers snatch a little boy, the hilarious events that follow will leave you wondering who the "victim" really is; two old friends enter the gloomy wine cellar, its cold walls dripping with dampness. Only one of the friends will ever leave; and riding home from a late-night party, a timid schoolmaster is pursued by a terrifying man on horseback - a man with no head. - Back cover.
