These tales represent the finest stories of s new era, in which evil both everyday and unfathomable will simply not go away.

Is She Good?," is asked by concerned parents whose cruel child courts fairy revenge. The "Ash Mouth Man" may be just a legend to girls who wish to waste away - but is he only worth just one kiss?
