The Addams Family features an original story, and it's every father's nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family -- a man her parents have never met.

Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before -- keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia.

Professor Van Helsing and his brave comrades must hunt down and destroy the profoundly evil Count Dracula. But the Count is exceedingly resourceful, employing superhuman strength, psychic powers, and shape-changing to confound and frustrate his antagonists.

One strange and dark year, long ago, Halloween came early. It came on October 24th, three hours after midnight, to be precise. The exact same time that Cooger and Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show rolled into Green Town, Illinois. As the town clock chimes 3:00, James Nightshade and William Halloway leave their beds to watch the train pull in, but there is no one manning the locomotive and no one in the cars behind. Yet the siren song of a calliope beckons all with impossible dreams and youth regained.

By Moira Buffini.

Two young women arrive in a nameless British small-town. Their names are not their own. They don't declare their ages. Their relationship with each other is not clear. Are they sisters, as their assumed identities declare? Or are they mother and daughter?
