Nightmare Fuel III by NearRyuzaki90 Nightmare Fuel III by NearRyuzaki90
If y'all can't tell by now, I like Stephen Gammell's artwork. And this one, in my humble opinion, is one of his creepier illustrations. When I bought this, I joked with the cashier about these being classified as kids' books. You let the horror of this classification sink in.

It's from the third book, the story "Oh, Susannah!" And while it's all kinds of creepy by itself, it gets further points for not being at all related to the actual story.

For the full image, by the way, since motivationals crop:

That's what I was thinking when I was looking at the pictures in the books. It's like "WTF?! o.O"

Oh hell...this brings back some childhood nightmares (and yes, I did own two of those books with Gammell's works in them)

It was about a student who heard humming while trying to fall asleep, keeps saying "I'm trying to sleep" to whom she thinks is her roommate, then opens the bed to find that her friend has been beheaded - so who's been humming?

PS scuse the late reply - I'm currently in Japan.

Actually the artwork IS somewhat related to an older version of the story, where the killer is actually still in the room, wistling, holding the roommates head while rocking in a rocking chair. It's still oblique, but not many people really care. All they care is that the art makes you shat bricks.
