Horror Anthologies Books

All Hallows' Eve

"All Hallows' Eve" - hear the whispering voices ... began as a Halloween flash fiction writing contest on Facebook, sponsored by Sharon Van Orman.

Writer 'friends' joined in and produced the harrowing, spine-chilling short stories found in this collection.

The contest ran for the month of October and each week's twenty-five entries were voted on with comments; the story with the most comments won.

The winning writers of the first four weeks competitions then competed for an 'author's dream' prize package of free ebooks, paperbacks, hardcovers, gift cards and more.

But everyone agreed all the stories were excellent...

The Facebook thread exploded. Comments and new 'friends' were acquired ... all with the same goal ... writing!

This is not one person's achievement, but a collective of people from around the block and around the world.

Bonus: "Intoxication" by Tim Kizer.

Are you paranoid if you end up dead?

Leslie has a suspicion: someone at work is trying to poison her. Can she prove it? No, and she doesn't care that she can't as she takes the law into her hands.

How about those who dismiss her fears and believe she is paranoid? Well, they certainly deserve to be punished.

What does she do when she starts questioning her own suspicions--and sanity? Hmm. That's complicated.

In this disturbing tale of derangement, a young psychopathic woman is slipping into madness as she fights an enemy that may exist only in her imagination. She has to resort to desperate measures when she realizes that a gun, security cameras in her apartment, and constant vigilance will not be enough to survive. It is hard to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if the cat is not there, but Leslie, with her resolve fueled by paranoia, is hell-bent on finding and slaughtering it.
