From the Authors of Poisoned Candy and the publishers of The Little Book of Harm, comes Devil's Night, a collection of bite-sized horror stories for Halloween.
Halloween has returned in all its dark and depraved glory, and Devil's Night: Bite-sized horror for Halloween will satisfy your carnal urges for death, decay, and far too much sugar.
Inside this short horror fiction goody bag is brimming with poisoned candy, ravenous haunted houses, casual necrophilia, yummy scrummy cat faeces, teleplasm, and of course an angry skeleton called Bob.
So slip into something a lot more creepy (we suggest your Nan’s nightie) crack open a cold cider and dip into Devil's Night: Bite-sized Horror for Halloween!
"Pippa Bailey and Myk Pilgrim return to form with the all-new Devil's Night collection. Simply put, the two authors deliver hard with tight sharp wit, humour and horror hand in hand. As it should be." ★★★★★ Nelson W. Pyles - author, Creator and executive producer of The Wicked Library
"A few tales had me so enveloped that I kept looking over my shoulder! - This is my first time reading a book by these authors and now I want to read the other Bite-sized horror books they have published. I will definitely keep this duo on my literary radar and you should too!" ★★★★★ Christina Eleanor
And for reasons that should be BLATANTLY OBVIOUS, this book is very much NOT FOR CHILDREN.

Myk Pilgrim is a horror writer, or at least that's what he likes to tell people.
He lives in a town just north of the wall, where he spends his time sharing cappuccinos with his inner demons, binge-watching horror movies with equally demented writing partner and significant other Pippa Bailey, shaving his head, annoying the locals, and generally just counting down the days until Halloween. Also, sometimes, he writes stuff.
So call me Augustus Gloop. The addictive ‘Poisoned Candy,’ for this newly inducted fan of horror drabbles, just wasn’t enough. I wanted more.
I was excited to pick up and read Devil’s Night. And it doesn’t disappoint. The 100 word limit has been lifted so we are treated to slightly longer candy canes in this collection. The stories are as deliciously dark and disgustingly humorous as PC. We are served up some monstrous treats in the form of THEG and Mannagishi; and had I been drinking by the time I reached the end of Bedtime for Billy-Boy I would’ve choked and spat my drink out. It’s that good.
Another great offering from the macabre Pilgrim/Bailey candy store. Can’t wait to drop by for my next bite.
Devil's Night is a fun collection of horror that is not only perfect for Halloween, but anytime of the year! Several of these short stories were very cleverly told with twists I did not expect. This was a fast read, as I finished the book in almost one sitting. A few of these tales gave me chills and had me creeped out. I remember thinking, could this really happen? A few tales had me so enveloped that I kept looking over my shoulder! The authors do warn the reader from the very start that these are some truly distasteful subjects. The subjects, although repulsive, worked with each story. The Soucriant story was one of my favorites! This is my first time reading a book by these authors and now I want to read the other Bite-sized horror books they have published. I will definitely keep this duo on my literary radar and you should too!
