HALLOWEEN CARNIVAL Volume 1 is a collection of five super good short stories just in time for the spooky season and for all fans of non-gory horror.
5 Stars - for STRANGE CANDY - by Robert McGammon - "I heard the wind blow past the house, like a keening cry." Oh, I loved this story. Originally published in 2012, but a first time read for me and a new Halloween favorite! Don't want to give anything away, but there's lots of feel good treats here!
5 Stars - for THE RAGE OF ACHILLES or WHEN MOCKINGBIRD'S SING - by Kevin Lucia - Oh dear.....a sad and haunting read about loss so all consuming it never really ends.
4 Stars - for DEMON AIR - by John R. Little - OMG! The flight of your life with a couple Ewwwwww moments high up in the air on All Hallows' Eve. Hehehe...
4 Stars - for LA HACIENDA DE LOS MUERTOS - by Lisa Morton - Actor Trick McGraw gets more than he bargained for on The Ranch of the Dead when the spirit of the once betrayed wailing woman appears.....or is it a hoax?
4 Stars - for MAKEHALLOWEENSCARYAGAIN - by Mark Allan Gunnell - Warning from the scarecrow: Better have your house decked out for Halloween......or else......he's coming! Great little mystery-thriller!
So much more here than your usual fare. Highly Recommend!
