Six Hundred and Sixty-Six Hands Screaming

I found it amusing that my horror collection One Hand Screaming was listed on a website (Rediff books - India's largest online bookstore) with a price of 666 rupees.

Yes, 666, the number of the beast, or mark of the devil.

(And it usually ships within 45 working days -- wow - that makes the standard 1 week wait around here for ordered books seem lightning fast)

How wonderfully fitting for a horror collection.

And yes, there is at least one specific reference to Satan in the book -- my story "Tricky Treater" which appears in OHS and was originally published in Crossroads magazine features the father of lies disguised as a little trick or treater.
