For Halloween this year, I give you a weirdly appropriate post from author Carrie Vaccaro Nelkin. Hints of creepy, folks.

 

By the Hungry Sea—Guest Post Carrie Vaccaro Nelkin

If you want to spend time in the sun to escape the encroaching seasonal chill, you’ll find my short story “By the Hungry Sea” in the upcoming Winter issue (no. 39) of Supernatural Tales. But I warn you, the heat and sand and salt water will not comfort you. If unease is what you desire to get your juices flowing, do slip into this tale of a man who loses himself bit by unsettling bit. Then enjoy the other disquieting offerings in this awesome publication. Let yourself be haunted.

Issue no. 39 will be available soon. In the meantime, check out previous issues of Supernatural Tales at http://suptales.blogspot.com/p/buy-supernatural-tales.html.

Two Ghost Stories for Halloween

I thought I’d recommend a few ghost stories but could only find two on my shelf. So, two it is. Why is it so hard to find good ones? Part of me thinks it’s because we’ve become so jaded in this modern Wi-Fi world—we’ve read more, watched more, and know all the tropes. And it is hard. Ghosts are defined as the spirits of dead people who can be seen or heard by others. Why is that scary?

Here are two completely different but riveting takes that are good for shivers. While they’re young adult, they hold up well for those of us over the age of majority.

A Farmers Market, Delicata Squash, and Laurie Colwin

I went to the Pleasantville train station this weekend to pick up a friend and there was a farmers market set up in the parking lot. I’m a sucker for farmers markets. They always give me the feeling of a tiny village congregating to do their daily shopping, with the scent of fresh dill and apples in the air.
