Hallowe’en is that time of the year that ghosts and ghouls, darkness and devils, come together in a festival of suspense and thrills. I am confronted each year with the dusting off of old favourites and submerging myself in that special darkness that can emanate only from a book…

But this year a friend told me about “31 Days of October” and it has turned my world upside down; you see, this anthology has an assortment of 33 short stories, each one the perfect size for a late night encounter with

31 Days of October, a Haunting Collection of Hallowe'en Tales by Terry Turner
31 Days of October: A Haunting Collection of Hallowe'en Tales - Various Authors

31 Days, is a collection of short stories, by 23 authors, who have come together to create a wonderful book.

These stories are broken into three categories expanding the size of their readership. Each section lets you know what a reader is in for, thrills and chills for the young, or more adult thrills.

The stories themselves are well written and creatively thought out. I was quite impressed with many of the stories

I loved reading the short stories in 31 Days of October. They fit perfectly in my busy life. I truly enjoyed the imagination of different writers as they left you in suspense relating their version of ghosts, witches and the after life. Also at the end of each story there was an explanation talking about the writer and why they wrote the story.

I enjoyed this collection. There was a little something for everyone here as the stories ranged from the type of stories kids tell around the campfire to humorous to downright chilling. One of my favorite stories involved a spider, and it's not what you think so I won't spoil it by saying more. Probably the darkest story was The China Doll, as it was a little jarring after reading some of the more light hearted stories. The collection did have a few stories that I didn't quite get, but those ...more

More uneven than the average collection, these short stories are a mixed bag. Some are quite good, and others ... not so much.

This collection of Halloween tales is a lot of fun. It's sorted into three sections - Halloween Stories, Suspense and Ghost Stories, and Chilling Tales for Adults. This enables readers who want to avoid really dark themes to do so. One can, in effect, read to their own level of comfort.

Most of the stories are quite well written. Some, especially in the first section, could be considered a little predictable by adult readers, but they'd be great for reading to older kids in the dark on

For those who get bored easily... or not, this book will entertain them with a variety of paranormal, ghost and witches tales. The participants in this anthology provided their own versions with unimaginable plots. Scary situations abound that will make the readers marvel at the writers' imaginations gone wild. May all readers be nightmare-resistant. Hihihi...

What do you get when you have some ghosts, ghouls, mummies, witches, shape-shifters & trick-or-treaters? **31 Days of October** This anthology is a great mix of both seasoned and new authors. These tales transport you from the ordinary to the extraordinary, to worlds that collide with the creepy and strange - the perfect length for lunch breaks or bedtime stories - but don't blame the authors for your nightmares.
