This is good material and I always love to read about how the writer came to be. \n \n First story "Only Kids Are Afraid of The Dark" is a tale about Dr Weird. It's a dark fantasy tale about a battle between Dr Weird and Sagaeth, the lord of the underdark. He wrote when he was 17/18 so you can see the inexperience of the writer."
