Read this book last Halloween, and it was so enjoyable I'm going to make it an annual thing! Several authors writing about characters from the same sinister town. Recommended!

You don't know where Oxrun Station is? Well its sort of a a distant suburb of Hartford just off the Pike. Seems like a nice enough place, part city - part country, but its also one of the worst fictional places to ever live. First immortalized by Charles L. Grant starting in the late '70s and featured in many stories and a few novels; all are highly recommended. You have five Halloween, somewhat interlinked, stories here featuring some of the teens in Oxrun this Halloween (actually Halloween 1999). Only one story is by Grant and the others are a sort of homage to Grant, "The Station," and Halloween. A good fun romp through what has been called "quiet horror."

Re-released as a series of Kindle books from a somewhat rare book edition from 1999, this one collects all five stories together (don't bother with the individual Kindle stories).

If you like this, most of Grant's Oxrun canon is once again available as Kindle and Nook books. They are usually also available as affordable used MM paperbacks.

Grant was also an excellent horror editor/anthologist and wrote many horror novels and stories under his real name and a variety of pseudonyms (mostly non-horror stuff).

This was a "collection" of stories, written by different authors, centered around Charles Grant's fiction town of Oxrun. I will admit, most of the stories didn't really impress me, but then, it's just not the same to have a story taken from another and expect it to be of the same standard. My favorite (which rated 5 stars in my opinion) was the one actually written by Grant, entitled Cody. The story before it, Chuck, was also pretty engaging and seemed to fit in with Grant's town very well. The first story was ok, but the others just didn't capture the "mood" of Oxrun, in my own opinion.
