* "Babycakes", by Neil Gaiman; a little piece written for PETA that's about exactly PETA. One day, all the animals in the world disappear. At first, people have no idea what to do... then someone suggests using babies for everything we used to use animals for. [[EatsBabies Food]], product testing, clothing... after all, "Babies canít talk. They can hardly move. A baby is not a rational, thinking creature." And so life goes on as normal... until one day, all the title says.babies disappear too. The short story ends there, but the comic adaptation ends with an old woman being experimented on, implying that humanity has moved on to using the elderly. Gaiman himself said it was the only thing he wrote that really scared him.

** That's not to mention the narrator talking about his backstory (mother institutionalized on probably trumped-up accusations by her own father kills herself, leaving the narrator in a sucky orphanage and with a drive for revenge on whoever his father was...) and his casual description of his current job as "troubleshooter."

** There's also the shock factor of [[LawfulGood Aslan]] [[ShockingSwerve suddenly]] committing [[FaceHeelTurn betrayal]] and brutality. You'll never see him the same way again..

* The short story ''Keepsakes and Treasures'' describes the narrator's rendezvous with a prostitute, with whom he deals gently and considerately. So far, so... surprisingly unsquicky. Then everything promptly takes a bullet train to hell when you find out that she was nine years old.

** Oh, there's so much worse. All of Susan's body has been eaten by Aslan except for her head. She's dead but still [[AndIMustScream aware]], and, having died with her eyes opened, she's ForcedToWatch as Aslan slowly eats her sister. As for her brothers, all that's stated is that the White Witch takes them but exactly what she does to them is [[NothingIsScarier never elaborated on]]. It's only said that they end up as some twisted... thing. Susan's torment only ends once Aslan devours her skull.
