King Hussein I

Joyce Carol Oates
Australia's arid western region, from the town of Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean coast, is a beautiful, haunting, but largely empty land. Dominated by the harsh, almost uninhabited Great Sandy and Gibson deserts, the region is known only to Australian Aborigines, a handful of white settlers, and the few travelers who motor across it.
I've been thinking a lot about space. It was one of those slow-motion realisations how little we are, how far we are from everything else in our solar system.

I knew about 'Haunting Hour' and that it was basically the new 'Goosebumps'.

It was a lot of fun, because I just love those scary shows, and I'm such a big fan of the horror genre.
