Scheduled to be released by Anchor in October, Haunted Nights is available to pre-order. The anthology features new stories by Seanan McGuire, Stephen Graham Jones, Jonathan Maberry, Joanna Parypinski, Garth Nix, Kate Jonez, Jeffrey Ford, Kelley Armstrong, Brian Evenson, Elise Forier Edie, Eric J. Guignard, Paul Kane, Pat Cadigan and John Langan. Haunted Nights is edited by Lisa Morton and Ellen Datlow. I’m delighted to announce my story, “We’re Never Inviting Amber Again” will be included. Thanks to the editors and to Anchor.
Here’s the publisher’s description:
“Sixteen never-before-published chilling tales that explore every aspect of our darkest holiday, Halloween, co-edited by Ellen Datlow, one of the most successful and respected genre editors, and Lisa Morton, a leading authority on Halloween.
In addition to stories about scheming jack-o’-lanterns, vengeful ghosts, otherworldly changelings, disturbingly realistic haunted attractions, masks that cover terrifying faces, murderous urban legends, parties gone bad, cult Halloween movies, and trick or treating in the future, Haunted Nights also offers terrifying and mind-bending explorations of related holidays like All Souls’ Day, Dia de los Muertos, and Devil’s Night.”
