*For the encore, go here.

With this compilation I wanted to highlight some of my favourite pastas of the past month that somehow got overlooked. Therefore, I won’t be adding any of the most popular stories (that means no Pasta Noir or Banningk’s stories). If you think I have missed a good pasta, please let me know in the comments below.

Note: Due to time restrictions, I didn’t read most of the largest stories.

In no particular order, here are the stories.

The Polished Man: The vivid description of the house and the creepy touches here and there make for a very compelling pasta.

Don't You Just Hate Car Trouble: A gripping tale of a man who -foolishly- set out on a road trip that was doomed from the beginning.

Dreams of Inner R'lyeh or How I Discovered the Apocalyptic Behemoth that Killed the World: Another Lovecraftian tale. If you want to read about giant, world-consuming deities, this is the place.

A Small Piece of Lead: A refreshingly moving tale that is a must for anyone searching for something new and original.

Shut That Damned Door: The author managed to maintain a very high level of tension and creepiness that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the story.

Honorable Mention:

I'm Worried About My Son
