Halloween Party ’21 –

Ready for a good scare to welcome in the season of the witch?

Halloween Party ’21, from Gravelight Press, has arrived.

If you can’t find it at your local bookstore, you can either ask them to special order, or you can purchase a paper or digital copy on Amazon.

Paper copies can also be ordered from the Devil’s Party Press online store.

And yeah, it’s that scary.

NOTES ON HALLOWEEN PARTY ’21

FULL DISLOSURE:
I published this book and wrote one of the stories in it & the introduction.
However, this book is notable, aside from my own motives for selling it, because it contains the last story that is ever going to be published by David W. Dutton, of One of the Madding Crowd fame.
David was my friend, and a wonderful writer, and has recently left us. 
It also contains a short story by noted Goodreads reviewer, Jeffrey D. Keeten. Did you know Keeten could do fiction too? You did not!
Any Anne Rice fans? Then you may be interested to know that in this book is a story by Faye Perozich, noted for this work
If you read comics, then you’ll be interested in the story by graphic novelist David Yurkovich (of Altercations and Less Than Heroes).
And if you follow horror magazine Samsara, then you will already be a fan of R. David Fulcher.
So, my own involvement aside, this book has a lot of plums hidden in it. I bet you’ll love it, and with it’s square shape and glossy cover (which you get to see in 2 more weeks!), it makes a great gift for that brother-in-law who you never know what present he would like. Give him a cool horror book!
