HAPPY HALLOWE'EN!

I am still struggling with jetlag, sleep all over the place, and not doing very well catching up on everyone and everything. So if I owe you an email, bear with me.

For the day that's in it I have a very short ghostly story up at Wales Arts Review for their Hallowe'en special. A dead girl speaks. It's here. There are stories by John Lavin and Jon Gower, among others. They also feature their first ever podcast, where two of their top writers (and horror fans) select a list of 13 alternative horror films to keep you up on Hallowe'en night.
