Publisher's Summary

The Halloween Horror Lives On….
For the month of October 2017, J. Ellington Ashton Press, on their Wicked Little Things blog-talk radio, broadcasted a series of Halloween stories. These “Fireside Stories” (as they were called) were a big hit with the listeners, and the decision was quickly made to publish these tales of terror in an anthology.
Written by some of JEA’s most terrifying authors - Catt Dahman, Jim Goforth, Mark Woods, Michael Noe, Essel Pratt, Amanda M. Lyons, Michael Fisher, Toneye Eyenot, Kitty Kane, and Roma Gray - these stories will send a shiver up your spine and remind you what Halloween is all about.

Some bite sized morsels to suck on!

Fireside Stories: Halloween Special is a fantastic collection of some short bits of terror from some great authors. I must admit, I am ignorant of most ofthem, but I have recently become a huge fan of Roma Gray (Check Out Jurassic Jackaroo or Blue Bell), and Essel Scott (of the amazing Sharkrantula). That alone makes it worth everything, but the other authors carry their own weight and really bring the Halloween spirit to life. The book is a collection of tales, some old, some new, but they were all new to me.

It starts of with a nice little hunerous poetic piece about a were-vampire, and then transitions to a man chased by the? Shadow of death. Then we get the Pumpkin Man!! Each story is worthy of standing on its own, but being tied to these others makes you feel as if you just sat through a monster movie marathon (sorry that's my childhood coming back to haunt me, horror movies were "Monster Movies"). Each one carries a punch like Mike Tyson and Mohammed Ali were pummeling you, but its a good kind of beating. I really enjoyed this, and Terry Self is great yet again. He conveys the growing horror and suspense with only his voice, and makes you ready to jump out of your seat. My line of work makesit practically impossible to creep me out or put me on edge, but Fireside Stories comes freaking close to doing so!

Happy Halloween!!!

Fun short stories that are quick drive listens

I like that these are short stories that I can usually finish in a day's commute. I know they're supposed to be fireside stories, but they are a nice escape while in the car on the way to/from work. My only dip in ratings was for the narration which in one or two places seemed a little too hurried and without energy. Maybe those stories just didn't resonate with the narrator, but the majority was really enjoyable.
