This is my favorite Stephen Gammel piece. Reminds me of 'Them Bones' by Chains, but of course it clearly has more to do folk music.

Cool as hell -- like a more 3-dimensional, icy version.

Oh Man, thank you! Growing up, these books were the one's to read if you wanted nightmares. You could not help but hesitate when reading them because you didn't know what nightmarish illustration a waited your eye's to graze over it. Too bad they were redone and watered down with new illustration's that just don't have the same scare factor of Stephen Gammel.

I love Stephen Gammel's Art .. Its So Other worldly , ghostly , and just like reminds me of another world like another dimension like ours but where the impossible weird happens .. and yet reminds me of CreepShow, Tales from The Crypt or Tales from The Darkside ... Its where Stephen Gammel's Illustrations and Alvin Schwartz's combination conjoined has taken me back too .
