You shiver with delight as crisp breezes herald the turning of the season.
The magical Autumnal Equinox signals the slow slide to longer nights. Leaves drop and festival carnies load up their booths and rides. There are those who usher in death and sometimes they just give the clueless a gentle push towards Hell’s gates.
School has started. Children used to laugh as they frolicked in fields with childhood friends. Their laughter is now muted, tamped down behind closed schoolhouse doors. But even here, within these pages, are they really children?
Crops are harvested and portals open to horrors -- both real and imagined, from the Old World to the current time. Deals and promises are made; pacts with the Otherworld that are more valuable than life itself.
Fall is the season of witches and magic; of nightmares and demons.
Come dance with us under the moonlight of the last harvest moon and enjoy these tales guaranteed to make you shiver!
Light a fire if you must, but beware, The Season of Fear has arrived.
This is the third in a four volume collection of Seasonal Anthologies from Den of Quills.
