The Curse of the Ripped Hat: A Horror Story by Hansel

While investigating the death of a local mechanic, a hilarious teacher called Warwick Fish uncovers a legend about a supernaturally-cursed, ripped hat circulating throughout New York. As soon as anyone uses the hat, he or she has exactly 15 days left to live.

The doomed few appear to be ordinary people during day to day life, but when photographed, they look mirrored. A marked person feels like a false badger to touch.

Warwick gets hold of the hat, refusing to believe the superstition. A collage of images flash into his mind: a fragile frog balancing on a feathery mechanic, an old newspaper headline about a golfing accident, a hooded pigeon ranting about feet and a drinking well located in a wild place.

When Warwick notices his ankles have badger-like properties, he realises that the curse of the ripped hat is true and calls in his aunt, a navigator called Alison Cox, to help.

Alison examines the hat and willingly submits herself to the curse. She finds that the same visions flash before his eyes. She finds the fragile frog balancing on a feathery mechanic particularly chilling. She joins the queue for a supernatural death.

Warwick and Alison pursue a quest to uncover the meaning of the visions, starting with a search for the hooded pigeon. Will they be able to stop the curse before their time is up?
