Comment: The Were-serpent of Karnak: A guy and a woman reporter are sent to Egypt to examine a stone snake. The snake holds a woman supposedly dead for 4000 years who awakens (and happens to know that exactly 4000 years have passed). They are caught as foreigners but one thing the were-snake hadn't figured on was the progress of science and it's enough to deal with her. Horror in the Swamp (text): Never dump a guy out of a plane, steal his money, stay with natives, escape, and enter the jungle. Not the smartest things to do. The Bat and the Brain: A guy makes a mechanical bat that can be controlled by thought waves. Later the woman sees a large bat-like thing with a skeleton. The creature turns out to be a type of vampire, but the guy handles it. Chill Chatter (text): Things from the editor. Tomb of the Unholy Dead: A photographer visits a tomb and is warned that it is cursed. He takes something from its outside and then goes inside where he finds a woman. The woman practiced evil witchcraft in the distant past and she and her followers were put into the tomb on purpose. She plans to use him for her own purposes. True Ghost Experiences: This is one of those 'ghost appears to get justice' type of things.
