The long-awaited follow up to one of the most acclaimed Halloween anthologies ever! This oversized volume will contain spooky Halloween short stories, dozens of authors and artists recalling their own personal memories of Halloween, and essays detailing the history of Halloween. Many of the contributing authors will also autograph the signed editions, which we don't expect will last long considering the popularity of the original October Dreams and the low print runs we have planned for these special editions.
