There was, growing up a Saturday morning show called Eerie, Indiana where anything weird that could happen did and our young hero survived each encounter (sometimes by the skin of his teeth). Horror at Halloween: Part One puts the spotlight on Oxrun Station, Connecticut, with only the beginning of the stories of Oxrun. Part One centers around Sam Jones, an English/Welsh implant on the American soil. He runs across the legend of a supposed ghost, Hugh Morgan, hears whispering in his head, and meet Glynnis, a haunted descendant of Hugh Morgan, who cares for her grandmother who holds some deep secrets. By the end, dangerous stakes are raised, ghosts will be met, and a curse ended (as far as we know for the present). The story is very good (can you smell my enthusiasm here?).
Laying the groundwork, Horror at Halloween is - Part One, written by John Gordon. The rest of the series will continue to Part Five and we are talking big names as well: Stephen Bowkett, Diane Duane, Craig Shaw Gardner, Charles L. Grant. Anybody interested, you should be. The complete book - all of the above - will be available Monday, Oct. 31...Ohmagod, is that Hallowe'en? He shyly glimpses aside. My friends, explore Part One by John Gordon. And then follow the trail of supernatural stories until the end of it. Something tells me, without seeing the rest of it, you won't be dissappointed. The writers are good & their talents are great. Never doubt that you are going to be dissappointed.

I downloaded Part One here because it was free and I was looking for short stories to get me psyched up for Halloween. I've never heard of any of these authors before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The Prologue really threw me off - I have no idea who the person speaking is supposed to be, but it's apparently not the subject of this first story. Maybe there are other Oxrun Station books out there that I've missed, or maybe it will be revealed in other installments. I dunno. Sam's story is a great introduction to Oxrun Station, as the character himself is new to the town - to the country in fact. Nice to see a British character having an adventure in a USA town for once, rather than the other way around! The story is intriguing but feels as though the author had to trim down a lot of development in order to keep the story to a set length. And the ending itself seems hurried - there's a lot of build up and then poof! All done. It was a nice little ghost story, what I was looking for, and managed to hook me enough that I bought the next installment, but it still needs work.

The author spends so much time setting the scene that the story never really gets a chance to take off. The prologue is apparently designed to tie all of the stories together, but it is a confusing way to start things off. The characters are supposed to be young people, but you'd never know it from their actions -- they seem to spend most of their time in libraries, fly fishing, or reviewing local history at a museum. The final "conflict" (I hate to use a word that suggests even that much action) just felt contrived.

Overall, not a story that I'd recommend.

It didn't take off like I expected and the horror was not so scary. I did enjoy the love story twist.

Bizarre things happen in the small town of Oxrun Station. No one can explain why. Mysterious things happen that nightmares are made of. This series of 5 stories tell of the strange things that occur on Halloween night to five different people that live in Oxrun Station.

In the first story Gordon starts the series off with a tale that I could easily imagine being told around the campfire in true ghost story fashion. He reveals information bit by bit giving us just enough details to build the suspense and to keep us guessing.

This series is an interesting idea, as each week a different book was released leading up to the 5th book and completed ebook to be published on Halloween 2012.

It's a good thing it was a 99 center--might appeal to middle school boys. Author could use a good editor

I really loved this book. I thought it was suspenseful enough to keep you reading but not so scary you couldn't contine.
