MR. GARRITY AND THE GRAVES takes place in the Old West circa 1890, A man and his wagon find their way into the town of Happiness, Arizona. The man, Garrity, claims to have the ability to resurrect the dead. Some of the townspeople figure that resurrecting the folks planted on Boot Hill might not be the best idea.


In WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP? passengers of a snow-bound bus originally bound for Boston are stranded at a roadside diner. There’s a growing realization that one of their number might actually be an invader from Mars.

REVIEWS


“Neither [story] allows for a dull moment, and both will keep the audience glued to the edge of their seats. They are eerie – and also lots of fun.”
