On "13 Halloweens" by Michael K. White (4674 words) *****

So one of my favorite online stories is back online and available. Credit the folks at Blue Print Review for reposting it. The story is essentially a recounting of anecdotes--thirteen of them--about Halloweens past. The writing is good and helps keep one engaged, but the stories at first seem simply to be an inventive list. Like many a good story built in this way, however, White has a doozy of an ending in store for you, where all those anecdotes are brought together, and suddenly the whole thing coheres. Read the story here at Blue Print Review.
