I've read 'em and I'm pondering.

What does "before the 31st" mean? Is today, the 30th, the last day for voting?

Okay folks, it's midnight on the 31st somewhere (and I think all of the entrants have voted)

The scores

Body in the woods....3
Bury me Deep...........8
Diggin' up bones........3
Pandemic..................5
the credit bureau.......6
The wish...................1
the wop....................3
The chemist...............1

Thank you all for entering and a special thanks to those of you who saw some value in "Body in the woods" and "Pandemic". There are special places in heaven for you.

The clear lesson here is to follow theme closely;
Your script may be good and might be quite ghostly,
But if you don't stay to the theme so precisely,
You'll end up with bupkiss even if you write nicely.

Why, that doesn't sound sinister at all!

Well played, I'd give you an extra vote if I could.

Congrats to all for writing to theme and deadline and for giving me fun reads, and to Southern_land for admin duties.
