One Potato Review

Will this give you nightmares? Hard to say, but it’s a pretty good place to begin if you are fascinated (and repelled and then fascinated) by scary stories. There’s some history here too - a haunting begins in Colonial Massachusetts, a bone makes its way to the Polar North on a whaler - still you are more likely to carry away, and to endlessly remember, the moaning, perennial, occasionally party-stopping song of old Greebe:

I quest, I quest
till all my bones
together rest.”
