Here, to treasure, a new story collection from award-winning horror master Al Sarrantonio. In Halloween and Other Seasons you'll find:
All this and much, much more. In Halloween and Other Seasons, there's a neighborhood rivalry that grows to monstrous proportions, a hedgerow with an appetite, the ultimate Charles Fort story, and the end of the world from the beginning.
Halloween and Other Seasons contains 18 gems of weirdness, including Al Sarrantonio's very first published story.
Sarrantonio has been hailed as "A writer of great stories" (Ray Feist) and "A very talented writer" (The Washington Post).
What disappointed you about Halloween and Other Seasons?
Some of the stories start out with a bang, but all end up very, very lacking.
What could Al Sarrantonio have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Making this book more enjoyable might be impossible. Everything seems....forced.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of William Dufris?
I don't think any narrator could have helped.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Halloween and Other Seasons?
All of it. I honestly didn't find anything about this book to be even remotely entertaining.
Any additional comments?
I doubt any narrator could have made this book interesting. I fell asleep while listening to it twice and had to start certain stories over. While some were passable, none of them were very enticing or entertaining.
