The world's oldest celebration comes to life in The End of Summer: Thirteen Tales of Halloween, an anthology that honors the darkest and strangest night of the year. Each story is designed to be intrinsically and intimately about Halloween - its traditions, its myths, and its effects - and they run the gamut from horrifying to heartbreaking. Demons are faced, death is defied, and love is tested. And not everyone makes it out alive. The End of Summer has arrived.
"Spooky Halloween Fun!"

"Great introductions to two iconic mystery series"

"IS A PIECE OF A@@, WORTH PRISON?, HELL YA!"
Women write horror and have written it since before Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein.

Lock the door and windows, put on a light, and remember, it's not real.

"Couldn't get enough"
We know what lurks in the bleak midwinter nights. Fear. In these eight tales, collected to give you shivers in the coldest season, we bring the fear right inside, to lie beside your bed or stand at the door. Or even to rest in the warmth of your kitchen. Come to abandoned mines, the bedrooms of children, the most silent of nights, and even a place where the Earth itself awakens with a fearsome hunger. Turn up the lamplight. Draw closer to the fire. And tell yourself it's just a branch scraping the window.
