As forewarned, it’s laced with profanity, but in my opinion, that’s what keeps those caissons rolling along! Add cat-and-mouse stealth, military banter, and earnestness in stopping a perilous prank which leaves the university in shambles at the clean-up cost of $250,000 every year. I laughed out loud on every page, and even louder when I reached the end!
Tomfoolery seems to bring out the best in those cadets who safeguard their jars of specimens, and never once crack under authoritative pressure to give up the cause, let alone admit it exists.
Whether or not the "Secret Society of the Great Pumpkin" actually exists, it’s no secret that I highly recommend Van Allen’s entertaining novella in the genres of Mystery and Thrillers & Suspense.
Allen’s military banter is enjoyable even if you’ve never been in the armed forces and/or don’t know much about that culture. He gives an enjoyable insight into what it was like for him, both interacting with his peers, the cadets, and his commanding officer.
The Society is where the real, bizarre humor lies. Their yearly Halloween ritual is strange and destructive, but you can’t help but laugh at it.
Allen’s writing style is great. He makes it easy to quickly become one with the characters and their stories. His work is easy and extremely enjoyable to read.

As his disclaimer says, this isn’t a book for the PC/Easily Offended crowd. But if your virgin ears have lost their sensitivity, and you don’t mind an f-bomb or two, if you have a sense of humor and love Holloween, then this short story is just what you’ve been looking for.
I’m a huge fan, of this book and of the author, and I’m looking forward to reading more of what Mr. Allen has to offer!
