HNT - October Dreams

I couldn't resist peeking out from behind a book again this week. Why? Because I've been hanging onto this book (which I think I bought last November or December) just itching to read it during the best month of the year. The Fall is a magnificent time of the year, the colours, the brisk chill in the air, and, of course, the entire month is a wonderful build up to HALLOWEEN!!!

I started reading October Dreams (edited by Richard Chizmar) late last week and man has it ever been worth the wait. It is an incredible collection of stories, essays and memories of Halloween by a variety of names in the horror and speculative fiction field. I haven't yet skipped a single entry nor have I been even slightly disappointed with the selection of items within. And I know I'll be sad when I finish reading it. But then again, there's always NEXT October to re-read it.

If you love Halloween stories, then this collection is definitely for you.
