Simon prefers computer games to reality, but a shockingly real turn of events might mean "Game Over" -- forever. This story and two additional contributions equal three more ways to define the word "fear".

Rory and April couldn't be more excited about their family's dazzling new car, but they'd be better off walking.
Welcome, reader. My name is Damien Graves, curator of that secret institution: The Midnight Library. Where is The Midnight Library, you ask? Why have you never heard of it? For the sake of your own safety, these questions are better left unanswered. However . . . as long as you promise not to reveal where you heard the following (no matter who or what demands it of you), I will reveal what I keep here in my ancient vaults. After many years of searching, I have gathered the most terrifying collection of stories known to humanity. They will chill you to your very core, and make the flesh creep on your young, brittle bones. So go ahead, brave soul. Turn the page. After all, what's the worst that could happen. . . ? Damien Graves
