Reviews of Dark Fiction

Halloween Season by Lucy A. Snyder

An excellent collection, from start to finish! With tales ranging from a child escaping the clutches of Devil’s Night to an elven toy-maker’s popular new invention, I dug ’em all.

Normally I would list off which tales I liked the most, but because I liked them all, I’m having some difficulties.

Certainly the funniest story has to go to THE TOYMAKER’S JOY because…well, you’d have to read it.

Let’s see…we have an evil twin, a telepathic ferret, witches and magic, zombies, a lonely, intolerant space traveler and a singer in the swamp. Both good people and bad inhabit these pages, all just waiting for your discovery.

Very well written, inventive and imaginative, Halloween Season was a fantastic addition to my October reading and it would be to yours as well!

Highly Recommended!

Halloween is the most wonderful part of the year for many of us. For dedicated fans, the season begins when the leaves start turning autumn colors and doesn't finish until Hallowtide ends in November. With it comes a whole lot of fun: scary movies and stories, haunted houses, seasonal sweets, spooky decorations, costume parties, and of course trick or treat. But Halloween is also a deeply spiritual time for some; it's an opportunity to remember and honor loved ones who have passed on.

Master storyteller Lucy A. Snyder has filled her cauldron with everything that Halloween means to her and distilled it into a spell-binding volume of stories. Within these pages you'll find thrills and chills, hilarity and horrors, the sweet and the naughty.

One of the best things about Halloween is you don't have to be yourself. So go ahead and try on a new mask or two ... you may discover hidden talents as a witch, a pirate, a space voyager, a zombie fighter, or even an elf. This is the perfect collection to celebrate the season of the dead or to summon those heady autumn vibes whenever you like. You may even find a couple of tales that evoke a certain winter holiday that keeps trying to crowd in on the fun.

In the worlds within this book, every day is Halloween!
