Halloween Week at the League!!

Oooh, we’ve got a fun week planned!

We have Halloween stories and anecdotes from writers, editors, and agents. We have Halloween recipes (and Samhain recipes). We have funny stories, and scary stories. We have pictures and videos. We have, in short, everything we need to make this week awesome…except YOU, so head on over, and keep checking back! There will be new content all the time!

Because remember, anything can happen on Halloween…

(Does anyone else remember that movie? Geez it was awful, wasn’t it? And that video makes me laugh my ass off every time. So cheesey they should serve it on toast.)

ALSO…to celebrate Halloween, Juno Books is giving away a FREE EBOOK! And it’s seriously kick-ass:

Five frightening classic tales–all written by women–that should send a shiver or two down your spine. FIVE CLASSIC GHOST STORIES: A HALLOWEEN TREAT FROM JUNO BOOKS includes “Let Loose” by Mary Cholmondeley (1890), “The Striding-Place” by Gertrude Atherton (1896), “The Lost Ghost” by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman (1903), “Kerfol” by Edith Wharton (1916) and “Spunk” by Zora Neale Hurston (1925).

You can download it directly right here: this is it. But before that or after it, pay a visit to the Juno site and wander around a little!

I am quite excited about Halloween. Did I mention my goth zombie costume? I will take pictures, of course. The costume is made for someone shorter than me, it seems–quite odd, considering I’m barely 5’3–so the waist hits me in a weird place and makes me look stumpy, but it’s a Halloween costume, so who cares? I’m just going to sit home that night and hand out candy anyway, while hubs takes the girls trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. I’m looking forward to it. I love trick-or-treaters.

And there was something else I was going to say, something quite interesting, too, but my children are making SO MUCH DAMNED NOISE I CAN’T HEAR MYSELF THINK. So I’ve forgotten it. Damn.

If I remember I’ll come add it in. Meanwhile, head over to the League for some fun!

    My daughter is going as a NUN, thank you. I happen to think that’s hysterical.

    OMG is that Tim Curry? Man, he was young!

    Yeah, I know about Charles’s flashstravaganza, but I’m a total failure at that stuff, seriously. Sad, sad me.

    Lol, Robyn, I had a friend who dressed as a nun for Halloween one year. The best part of it was, she was seven months pregnant at the time. :-) (And a devout Catholic with a sense of humor, too.)

    And yes, that was Tim Curry, very young, singing some of the worst lines ever. “Aliens gonna mess up every casette from London to Idaho…” Sheesh. BAD.

    I’m going to the big Halloween bash as a pre-World War II, Parisien dance hall-style butch lesbian, like you might expect to find in Cabaret, or Henry and June. I’m guessing the irony will be entirely lost on the folks hereabouts.

    And now, I must go help my son build a guillotine for his social studies class…

    I have no idea what that was from, but it was indeed hysterically bad.
