    October Dreams: A Celebration of Halloween
    edited by Richard Chizmar & Robert Morrish

    At more than 660 pages, this oversized volume is one of the best (and biggest) collections of Halloween material ever published!

    Contents include: 22 short stories of spooky Halloween fiction (eleven brand new, never-before-published tales specially-written for October Dreams and eleven classic reprints); dozens of authors and artists have contributed short pieces recalling their own favorite and very personal memories of Halloween; essays detailing the "history" of Halloween, Halloween in the movies, and Halloween in literature; special Halloween artwork scattered throughout the book; plus almost all of the contributing authors will autograph the signed editions; a total of several dozen autographs.

    Finally, for the Lettered Edition only, there will be a separate, specially-commissioned Halloween Art Portfolio, featuring twelve full-pages of stunning artwork inspired by classic Halloween images! Artwork by Cemetery Dance favorite Glenn Chadbourne!

      This is probably my favorite book! The 'My Favorite Halloween Memory' pieces are great. I read a few each October. I would love a second book but would be concerned that it could not live up to the first, of course I would order it in a heartbeat. The mix of new fiction, reprinted fiction and the non fiction pieces work so well together.

        I think since it's been so long since this came out, CD could find plenty of new people to contribute fiction or flip-flop from last time who wrote memories and who wrote fiction. I say we storm Maryland and DEMAND IT!!! Everyone follow me!!!!! ....um....guys??...you coming???

          4th edition - Artist's edition?

          Wasn't this released in 4 editions? I remember on the old Cemetery Dance site there was the "Artist's edition" as well, which if memory serves me correctly was limited to 13 copies, making it even scarcer than the lettered edition...

          I took a couple of photos of both editions and you can see they are quite different although they both have amazing production standards
