These personalized books were abducted before they could reach a friend in Massachusetts, USA. Whoever you are, were they worth it?

The venerable man stood among his secondhand books like a custodian of lost treasures. He saw me browsing about restlessly from the disappointment of not finding what I wanted from the first shop and from the heat that was punishing in this barren building.
He said, “Can I help you?”
I didn’t think he would have what I was looking for but I replied anyway. “Do you have any Pan Book of Horror Stories?”
He didn’t say a word and walked away to a stack of books on the darker side of the building. He flipped every single book that rose like towers of a cityscape, and found the first. He handed it to me and my hands trembled. It felt used, worn, and appreciated. And then there was a second. My heart skipped. And a third. I felt faint. And a fourth and fifth. I couldn’t believe what had happened. I was searching for those books for years.
Now I am able to free the rest of myself I lost in those realms, and recapture those who had escaped within the pages. I’m coming for you my lovelies. It’s time to rekindle a love so deep and dark only we would understand.

My version of the Pontianak that feeds on negative energy
The pontianak is a vampiric ghost in Malay and Indonesian mythology. It is also known as a matianak or kuntilanak, sometimes shortened to kunti. The pontianak are said to be the spirits of women who died while pregnant. Wikipedia
