Book Description

Frightful October takes you across shadowed cornfields and along the twilight streets of suburban neighborhoods, beneath dark forests and through haunted houses, in this short story collection centered around Halloween and the darker aspects of the fall month. These chilling tales can be whispered before an autumn bonfire, or in the confines of an evening chair, but regardless of the surroundings, the terrifying atmosphere has already been set in place, and you're the invited guest. You'll have shivers crawling your spine, as you turn each dreadful page of this wickedly delightful book. Paul Melniczek is the writer to watch. In a very short time, he has proven himself a master craftsman--a powerhouse of a storyteller that can deftly walk between the classic and modern eras of horror, with a voice that is uniquely his own. You're going to enjoy this! Brian Keene, author of No Rest For The Wicked and More Than Infinity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back to October country... February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Paul Melniczek is fast becoming one of my favorite authors to read, especially around the Halloween season. His collection is full of Autumnal imagery that will send a chill up your spine. If you are into Halloween stories by Bradbury or Al Sarrantonio, Paul Melniczek will not disappoint. Another great book by Paul is Haunted Halloween from Dark Regions books which contains more Halloween stories. Another thing about Melniczeks stories are they are for adults but young adults could also enjoy these stories because there is no foul language or gratuitous sex.

I'm in the process of reading this book now. As in all short story compilations some of the stories are pretty good and I like them and others I sit scratching my head and thinking, "What was that all about"? Well this is exactly the typical short story book. I bought it because it's my personal tradition to read scary material because of Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year.
