The five freshest voices in horror will make you reconsider leaving the house on October 31st with these all-new Halloween tales:

A deformed boy just wants to be normal in Evans Light’s Pumpkinhead Ted.

 

A group of ghost hunters learn that looking for terror is a whole lot more fun than finding it in Adam Light’s Ghost Light Road.

REVIEW: BAD APPLES: FIVE SLICES OF HALLOWEEN HORROR



If you love extreme Halloween Gore, well-written and well-conceived, you'll surely salivate over this pentacular collection (five authors, one theme: gory Halloween). Those with queasy stomachs (if you hide your eyes during 27 October renditions of the "Halloween/Michael Myers" series), not so much. These stories are pretty graphic and quite scary. I read the collection in an evening, and the stories followed me into sleep. My personal favorites were the most delightful "The Riggle Twins" and the themed-set "Pumpkinhead Ted," but "Ghost Light Road" pursued me into sleep.
