The Halloween Phantoms: A Halloween Short Story
by John R. Little
About the eBook:
Ellen Weston expected her first Halloween in her new home to be uneventful, until she found the gift on her front door from "The Halloween Phantoms." She assumed it was an innocent neighborhood game. What she didn't know was that the phantoms were deadly serious about spreading good will, and Ellen's oversights could have disastrous consequences...

John R. Little was born in London, Canada, and started writing short stories at the age of twelve. The stories he wrote at the time are not memorable.
After graduating university with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Math, he moved to Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in North America. His first publications trickled in. At the same time, the business world called and kept John busy working on designing large-scale computer applications.
John has two wonderful grown children, Peri and Christian, and two grand-children. Christian's daughter is Mariechen, and Peri's daughter is Cavell.
Recently, John has started writing again with a passion, and has had a number of publications, with others planned for the coming year.
His first novel, The Memory Tree, was published by Nocturne Press in 2007. It was nominated for the Bram Stoker award for best first novel. A novella, Placeholders, was then published by Necessary Evil Press. This book was nominated for the Black Quill award.
