Great Pumpkin: Well me lovelies, I hear yeh wish ta court some monsters. Being the season of scare, I'm cookin' up a twist, servin' yeh the inside scoop. Grab yer wits and come on a trip inta me neighborhood. La ti da!

Mystrella: Ah, it's Ferry Blackwell. He's sure to be stirring up trouble. Let's stop in to see what's cooking.

Ferry Blackwell: Mistress Mystrella! A delicious sight! Come, dine with me tonight. I've some little candies that'll make you shudder, a pinch of this and a tad of butter. No? Too shy? Such a pity. If your friends have the time, I've a story that's witty.

Mystrella: Watch out! I see the gypsy, Eldrich. Keep your heads, and be careful what you wish for.

Eldrich: Hello dearies. So nice to see you, and you're just in time for the Faerie Market. You'll need a banana and your imagination to proceed. If you're lacking, I can provide, at a price of course! Now gaze into my crystal ball and transport yourself into the magic.

  21. The Halloween story that used to scare me the most when I was young was the headless horseman story. That one terrified me. Autumn nights still make me a little nervous. Thanks for the chance.

  25. I really don't have an uber scary pick either. I am reading 13 DAYS OF MIDNIGHT by Leo Hunt right now though and it's pretty chill inducing! I adore books but they don't scare me like that. :)

  26. I have waited and waited for this book. I would be thrilled to win a copy. I LOVED your brilliant tour today.

    The scariest story to me (so far) has been either The Shining or It. The Heart-Shaped Box is also incredibly creepy.
