WIN "Ghosts: True Encounters with the World Beyond"

  Or, "How the Pun-ishing Heat Profited Me and May Profit You."

 The blogzine Shadows and Screams, a site I recommended yesterday, awarded me a prize that I'm going to pass onto TDSH readers because I already have it! The prize is a copy of the book Ghosts: True Encounters with the World Beyond, by Hans Holzer. Fans of the history of paranormal activity who don't have this book shouldn't pass up this chance to get it!

 First, I want to tell ya how I won the prize. Shadows and Screams has a prize contest every month, and for the occasion of this summer's scorching temperatures, asked readers for heat-related variations of classic horror film titles.

I jumped in like I was canonballing into a pool. The winning ones I submitted were DAMP PITS AND THE PENDULUM and TASTE THE SWEAT OF DRIPULA.*  Others I sent in included these groaners:

 The high-temperature drive-in double feature:

I SWEAT ON YOUR GRAVE / I HEAT YOUR SKIN

 Starring Vincent Price:

THE FRY, RETURN OF THE FRY, and CURSE OF THE FRY

 '80s horror:

ROAST IN PEACE

 Grindhouse:
LAST UN-AIR-CONDITIONED HOUSE ON THE LEFT

 Fortunately, Mother Nature's feverish days seem to be over, at least for a while. So enter the contest by messaging me on Facebook. (Look to the right for a link to friend me.) The tenth person to send me a message that includes an e-mail address that I can forward to Shadows and Screams wins the book!



* Don't these sound like some sort of fetish porn titles?
