This volume reprints the comic-book series Beasts of Burden issues #1-4, the short stories from the Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, the Dark Horse Book of Witchcraft, the Dark Horse Book of the Dead, and the Dark Horse Book of Monsters,  "Stray," "Unfamiliar," "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie," and "A Dog and His Boy," published by Dark Horse Comics.
