Reception

In the first story, John Rozum reveals a little bit more about the gang while twisting the trite plot point of the school prom being the event in fiction. Usually a prom highlights the couple, but Mr. Rozum cleverly leaves a lot of room for those who doubt the Daphne/Freddie relationship. Are they a couple, or are they simply friends? You decide.

The prom in the horror genre usually translates the often life-changing reality into a life-changing surreality where you can wind up dead, eaten by Hellhounds or find yourself awash in pig's blood and telekinetically hurled through a window.

Mr. Rozum nicely marries "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" to the spooky traditions of the prom in horror fiction. By thinking about the reality of the situation, he elects a more realistic outcome if such hogwash ever would occur during a real prom. He also spares little sympathy for either the antagonist or the character who would be the traditional protagonist. It's a daring move that allows the Scooby Gang to be the more mature individuals and more overtly heroic.[1]
