You can smell that long-dying aroma of Autumn in the air. Kids are talking trick or treat and the leaves are already screaming at you in red and yellow and deep golden rust as they prepare for one final parachute down into the dirt. The tombstones are talking amongst themselves and winter is hiding just around the corner. It is the time of the year when people draw around the wood stove and the campfire and whisper stories of death and omens and ghosts and things that don't even have a name.
These are some of the creepiest October stories that I have ever written.

Carve a pumpkin and get ready for tricksntreats!
I really do appreciate Steve Vernon's style. The man is pretty versatile, so one story may be straight up monster booggity boogity and the next a psychological thriller that has some real emotional depth and meaning. He has here seven tales that mix up the terror levels and amps the creep factor a lot. Some are really bothersome, like the tumble bug man burning bones in a barrel, and others kind of touching like the dog in Cat Call. I have probably said this a dozen times, but I believe that Vernon knows his craft, and that no stories sounds like it is related to another. Yeah, you know he wrote it, but the ideas vary so far and wide the only connection they share is him. What I mean is, if you bought a Rolling Stones album in the sixties and listened to it, and then bought one in the nineties you would recognize that it was the Stones, just by their sound. You can't do that with Vernon. He really shifts and adapts his style to the story. He can go light hearted to inky blackness with just a period in between the two. Not many writers can do that.
This is a fun listen for a trip or a night alone, just before bed, or even better while you are in bed.
Wolfe does a nice job narrating, he does a have a specific pace that he sets, and it seems to be maintained through each tale. He does really great in stories with just a few voices, but handles the larger cast, such as in Cat Call just as well. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Wonderfully descriptive creepy tales
Well I really enjoyed this book, it is delightful collection of short creepy tales.
The observational descriptive writing by the author Steve Vernon is wonderfully detailed . This, along with the excellent eerie narration of Stephen Wolfe transports the reader into stories, to the point that you actually feel that you are there watching stories slowly unfurl before you.
If you are looking for horrific and gory violence I suggests you look elsewhere as these tales are more ominously sinister, disturbingly direful and descriptively excellent.
