The Collector by Fiona Cummins- $9.99 – I like how Creepy Crate includes some great books with their subscription boxes.
In Fiona Cummins’ new novel of taut psychological suspense, an elusive psychopath meets his match in a detective who’s just as ruthless—a woman who knows all too well that the best mind games are played in the dark . . .
It was only months ago that Detective Sergeant Etta Fitzroy was held captive by serial killer Brian Howley. Incredibly, she escaped. But so did he. What was found in the macabre museum Howley called home was unnerving enough. For Fitzroy, what the Butcher of Bromley didn’t leave behind chills her to the bone: not a single trace of his most recent abductee. All Fitzroy wants to know now is . . . dead or alive, where is the girl?
Hiding in plain sight with a new name and a new identity, Howley is making plans for an ingenious new start, and he’s daring Fitzroy to come along. Clue by terrifying clue, she’s following in a killer’s footsteps, but even she can’t imagine where they’ll lead. Because Howley’s endgame has a terrifying twist—one that will not only change his fate, but the fate of everyone Fitzroy is risking her life to protect.
Spell Book and Broom Pen – I like the size of this tiny book. The wooden broomstick pen is a nice touch as well.
Sage and Lavender Bath Bomb – Throw this in the tub and get to reading on a creepy book!
Harbinger of Death Necklace – The raven looks super creepy and awesome on the necklace.
Black Hill Regional Park T-Shirt – Hey, I’m going out into the woods. Does anyone do some really shaky camera work so we can capture all the fun?
Conjure Wife by Fritz Lieber Audiobook – I have become a big fan of audiobooks. This should be a good one.
A professor discourages his wife’s witchcraft to disastrous ends in this classic tale—the basis for three films—from the Grand Master of Fantasy.
Norman Saylor, a professor of ethnology, discovers that his wife, Tansy, has put his research in the field of “Conjure Magic” into practice for the sake of protecting him from other spell-casting faculty wives wishing to further their husbands’ careers. A man of science, Norman has only an academic interest in the subject of magic and superstition, and forces Tansy to cease all her workings and to burn all her charms. But, as soon as Norman burns the last charm, things start to fall apart. He has a run-in with a former student, his student secretary accuses him of having seduced her, and he is passed over for a promotion that seemed certain.
Norman begins to have more than his fair share of small accidents: cutting himself while shaving, stepping on carpet tacks, cutting his hand with a letter opener, and more. He begins to imagine that there is a dark presence exploiting his fear of trucks. When Tansy takes his curse upon herself, Norman is forced to overcome his disbelief and use witchcraft to save his wife’s body—and her soul.
Originally published in 1953, Conjure Wife is considered a modern classic of horror-fantasy and has been adapted for film three times: Burn, Witch Burn (1962), Weird Woman (1944), and Witch’s Brew (1980).
Everything in this month’s Creepy Crate is totally creepy yet enjoyable to look through. For a horror fan like me, the homages to some of my favorite properties makes this box really exciting. My favorite item this month is the t-shirt, but the rest are just as amazing. It’s a great subscription to try whether you’re simply into spooky reads or a horror fan in general!
