Halloween Spooks

Halloween completes the triumvirate of my favorite holidays. Along with Christmas (keeping messy theology out of the mix, there are plenty of presents for everyone) and Independence Day (when I make things explode), this is the good stuff.  Ghosts, spooky stories, butchered pumpkins... Ah, yes. Don't forget: Today is the last day to enter my October contest.

And fun reading material--

Editor K.V. Taylor of The Red Penny Papers is kind of enough to publish my second Sons of Chaos serial novella. Head over and read part 1 of The Sons of Chaos and the Desert Dead. Nothing like a good evisceration on Halloween. It's going to get weird.

(Can you believe jack-o'-lanterns used to be made from turnips? Turnips!)

Turnips definitely make for spookier jack-'o-lanterns!

Happy Halloween to you & the family!

Happy Halloween! Yes, this is the day of days. :-D

We used turnips as a kid. In fact, I don't think we really started to use pumpkins until the 1990s.

Have a fabulous HALLOWEEN.

Have a great Halloween, Aaron! I watched REC 2 (Spanish language horror film) over the weekend and found it quite good!
