This was a given purchase for me as soon as I laid eyes on it; it's weird, it's creepy, it's got mansions, everything!
I wasn't disappointed having read through it either, I don't think there's been a single one of them I've seen without going "Huh, what if...?" or "This could fit in really well riiiiight here...". They are, you might say, the seeds of plot hooks; they're lying there, being all mysterious and begging for a storyline to reel people into. You have to put in a little bit of work as GM to able to use them as story tools, but (for me, at least) they make that work so much easier.
Well worth the $1 or $2 price tag, and I would still feel I'd gotten my money's worth even if they were a dollar more.
