...Interlude... ...Horror Preview Contest No. 3...

In the March 1974 issue of Psycho No. 17, the “Archaic” one began a feature called the “shudder” Horror Preview Contest, in which he asked readers to fill in the blank word balloons. The winners would get an advance copy of an upcoming Horror-Mood issue for their efforts. Well, here we are, 37 years later, and little Richie J Arndt’s “choke” stab at this finally showed up in my inbox. I found it to be an excellent entry, and so with no further ado, lettered up by yours truly and presented for your pleasure is Richard’s one page story 'Blood Runs Deep'. Truly a tongue in cheek tale and sure to become a modern Skywald Horror-Mood classic. …Enjoy…

P.S. Now, Richard, about that advance copy of an upcoming Horror-Mood issue…
