Summary "Have you heard about the man who marries ... a corpse?! Or what about the magic school where one student in every class is never allowed to leave? Or the beautiful rd-haired maiden whose hair is actually serpents? Many of these tales go back hundreds of years and to the farthest corners of the earth, but as diverse as they are, they also reveal one important truth: Everyone loves a scary story"--Cover verso.
