Haunted Nights
Haunted Nights | Ellen Datlow, Lisa Morton
Sixteen never-before-published chilling tales that explore every aspect of our darkest holiday, Halloween, co-edited by Ellen Datlow, one of the most successful and respected genre editors, and Lisa Morton, a leading authority on Halloween. In addition to stories about scheming jack-o'-lanterns, vengeful ghosts, otherworldly changelings, disturbingly realistic haunted attractions, masks that cover terrifying faces, murderous urban legends, parties gone bad, cult Halloween movies, and trick or treating in the future, Hallows' Eve also offers terrifying and mind-bending explorations of related holidays like All Souls' Day, Dia de los Muertos, and Devil's Night.

I always find it hard to review short story anthologies. A few stories were great. Most were good. A couple were not worth reading. Typical, but overall a good read.

Like any anthology, there were good stories, so-so stories, and great stories. It did suffer from s bit of repetition of ideas in that several authors explored the same legend, but at least it gave me a bit of Halloween in March. #horror #anthology #halloween

These days I get most of my reading done on the train. Hooray for public transportation!

I got this in a book swap and am so glad I did! In my opinion, every single story in this collection was 4 or 5 stars. Highly recommend! #horror #halloween

When I saw the prompt almond biscuit, the first thing that popped my head were these almond cookies.

I really wanted to get to this book this month, but I don't know if that will happen. If it doesn't, I guess I'll just have to move it to November.

Angus will keep me safe from the ghosts while I read these spooky stories. Unless the ghosts have treats. In which case, I‘m doomed.

Mehso-so

Really about half the stories were good, the other ranged from frustratingly bad to forgettably okay. But two stories were WONDERFUL. “Sisters” by Brian Evenson was creative and laugh-out-loud funny. The story of a year in the life of an Irish immigrant in New York (“All Through the Night” by Elise Forier Edie) was beautiful and heartbreaking.

Here‘s my planned stack for Dewey‘s 24 hour #readathon! I‘m going with spooky books. 👻

Wraith and Sideways Stories are rereads. I‘ve been enjoying this new anthology, Haunted Nights. The stories all take place on Halloween. I‘ve been dipping in and out of Another over the past 2 weeks. It‘s a little slower than I expected, but I‘m less than halfway in so maybe it will start to pick up. Hoping everyone has a great readathon!

DeeLew I love this stack!! 2y
Beck9lol Nice! You probably won't want to sleep either. 👻 2y
