Code Redhead: Day Of The Dead is a dark horror short storywritten by J.R. Wirth. Sham Jones found himself out in the rain consolingCali's BFF, a scrawny girl named Linda McNally, who generally made his skincrawl. They were both bereft, bereft and overwhelmed with dread over Cali'slikely fate. Sham had tried to discourage Cali from getting into Red's car,even to the point of physically placing himself between them, but she seemeddrawn to the older, charismatic young man with the teal blue Trans Am. Shamcouldn't wrap his mind around the fact of her rejection, her careless giving into impulse on this rainy Halloween late afternoon. She seemed complicit withher seducer who glibly pronounced that the next day was el dio de los muertosin tones that carried directly to Sham. His need to protect her battled withSham's fear of the larger, menacing Red, who tossed him a bottle of vodka,promising it would bring illumination and insight. Sham ended up sleeping thenight in the school's gymnasium, shivering in the damp chill, waiting for Calito return.
Halloween and its companion holiday, el dio delos muertos, are days steeped in mystery and the unknown, and J.R. Wirthbeautifully exploits that ambiance in his dark short story, Code Redhead: DayOf The Dead. I loved the way even the elements conspire in the dark goings-onas the doomed Cali blithely follows Red down the road to Never-Ever land, thelarge tracts of wilderness beyond the logging camps, also known to the localsas the land of lost innocence...and lives. Code Redhead is a powerful andmoving tale as Sham finds himself unwittingly carried along with theincreasingly strange Lin, who is alternately appealing and repulsive, andcauses him to think in terms of mingled violence and lust. This is a tense andneat little thriller of a short story that snatches the reader out of his easychair and propels him into the rain-damp scene from the first paragraph, andthen drags him along for a nightmarish rescue ride into hell. It's dark, tautand a perfect read for a dark Halloween evening. Code Redhead: Day Of The Deadis most highly recommended.

In Redhead Dead, author Jennifer Conner takes the reader on another story of romance and intrigue. Marked with great feeling, twists, and turns, the romance reader will most definitely be happily fulfilled.
Sharon Kleve’s Redheads Have More Fun, mixes protecting family business and unexpected love, all in an unorthodox manner. Set in New Orleans, this voodoo, love caper is bound to make any reader smile.
Save the Prince; save the King; and save the reds. In doing so, Red Sarah may just save herself, who knows, but what might be the cost? Moving from modern day wisecrackery, to a time of romance, long ago, Carol Ann Kauffman’s tale is filled with majesty and bravery. This time travel story is a gift for all.
JR Wirth’s Day of the Dead is not quite so romantic. It is, however, a smart thriller that requires the reader to pay attention, as two teens try to find their friend, Cali, who appears to be abducted on Halloween, by a new, diabolical guy in town, known simply as Red. The taking of Cali seems to be connected to a string of ritualistic killings occurring on the Day of the Dead. Filled with hidden clues to the psychopathic killer(s), it is a fun read that won’t be resolved until the final word of the final sentence.
