About the Book:
Featuring Nearly 250,000 Words of Halloween Horror!

These twenty-five authors put the horror back in Halloween with their devilishly delightful tales, curated by acclaimed author and editor Brian James Freeman.

This anthology collects dozens of spooky tricks and hair-raising tales where monsters hiding in plain sight are unmasked. Gather around children, it's time to bring the ghouls of the most haunted night of the year to life. Reading these stories will unleash the unsettled spirits of the past, but you have nothing to fear but the night itself, right?

And once you enter, you may not be able to leave, but you also may not want to leave even if you could! Welcome to... the Halloween Carnival!
