Halloween Countdown, Day 4


Thanks to everyone who participated in my Mad Scientist Poll. At the time of this posting, the results are as follows:
First Place: Dr. Horrible from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
Second Place: Dr. Walter Bishop from Fringe
Third Place: a tie between Dr. Frank N. Furter from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and that guy in the "She Blinded Me with Science" music video ("Science!")
Fourth Place: Dr. Miguelito Loveless from The Wild Wild West
I'll be posting a new poll in a few days.

Now for a blast from the past, here's a trailer for the 1933 classic The Invisible Man with Claude Rains:



Spooky Text of the Day: Today's story is "Four Wooden Stakes" (1925) by Victor Roman.

Excerpt:
"I don't know what ye wants to go out there for, stranger, but if yell take the advice o' a God-fearing man, yell turn back whence ye come from. There be some mighty fearful tales concernin' that place floatin' around, and more'n one tramp's been found near there so weak from loss of blood and fear he could hardly crawl. They's somethin' there. Be it man or beast I don't know, but as for me, I wouldn't drive ye out there for a hundred dollars cash."

Read the complete story here.
