First off, I thought this was going to be the weakest installment but reading the second half I found out that the quality was strangely balanced.These are a couple of stories which didn't do much for me (but still managed to attain a certain level of quality in my eyes):Houdini Fish - Jonathan ThomasDimply Dolly Doofy - Donald R.

      Perhaps it's a testament to how desensitised human beings are becoming, but I didn't find these stories scary or unsettling in the slightest. That said, they are very good stories.
