Be Well Come to the Biggest issue yet of "The World of Myth!" This month
we are focusing on paranormal activity, and have gone to great lengths to
bring you some fascinating and bizarre stories and information pertaining
to ghosts, spirits, things that go 'Bump' in the night, and all manner of
other unusual occurrences.

short story department, "Queen of the Westerlands" opens with another

of, "The Diary of Uno Duo." And, while I am sure some mistake has been
made (we are checking into possible 'ballot box stuffing'), apparently

Then, specially for this issue, Saranna DeWylde shares with us a secret
recipe for making a Zombie Powder, as well as some of her research into
the curious and often misunderstood religions of Voodoo and Hoodoo. This
issue we have Two interviews for you--Saranna returns and shares research
into her study of the paranormal, and we also have Kristie Murphy, of
West Coast Ghost Hunters, a group who investigate hauntings and spirit
sightings. Don't miss these interviews!
Stop by our Movie Reviews, too, as Balcony Betty returns to accompany
Reaper Rick in giving their thoughts on a slew of flicks--some good, and
some 'Horror'able. And, the Month in Myth discusses May, and what it
means to those of us who enjoy Spring.
All in all, this issue should keep you busy for some time, and cause you
to listen even more carefully to those mysterious little sounds in the
night, that you might otherwise have simply ignored. We ask that you
explore this issue with an open mind--you may never know when you might
learn something new. But, most importantly, we want you to...
