DESCRIPTION:

A Pumpkins' Halloween is a wonderful tale that embodies all the right attributes that sum up the spirit of the holiday of Halloween. Ghosts, zombies, vampires, maniacs, witches, and talking jack-o'-lanterns all take turns playing different roles in this multi-storied novella. A Pumpkins' Halloween brings to you everything you remember that was fun about Halloween along with a good dose of dark humor, while at the same time scaring and sickening you with its real-life tales of depravity.

A Pumpkins' Halloween follows the storytelling of five jack-o'-lanterns as they come to life on Halloween evening. As the jack-o'-lanterns banter back and forth while giving each other grief, they find themselves forced to look out on the street because, after all, they're stationary, they're pumpkins. As Halloween progresses, each jack-o'-lantern takes turns telling a story in celebration of the holiday and one will ultimately be judged the winner at night's end. However, there is a stipulation. Each story has to be about the trick-or-treaters that the jack-o'-lanterns watch passing them by as they go about in search of candy. Also, each story gets to be picked by one of the other jack-o'-lanterns for added difficulty.

The tales the jack-o'-lanterns tell focus on such taboo subjects as a father who is not very good at being one, a little boy who likes to play with matches, a woman who doesn't enjoy the company of children, not even her own, and a psycho killer who likes to target trick-or-treaters for his murderous games.

DESCRIPTION:

A "profoundly creepy and creepily convincing thriller" of religious fanatics and hoax debunkers from the Edgar Award–winning author of Hanging Hill (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes, but when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned.

Following the trail of a strange creature caught briefly on film, so deformed it can hardly be human, Oakes crosses a border of electrical fencing, toxin-filled oil drums, and pig skulls to infiltrate the territory of the groups' isolated founder, Malachi Dove. Their confrontation, and its violent aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oakes to question the nature of evil--and whether he might be responsible for the heinous crime about to unfold . . .

This latest entry from the acclaimed British author of the Jack Caffery novels "taps into the current fascination with all things supernatural and questions our assumptions about a number of subjects, from faith healing to cultish religious groups and society's definition of evil" (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review).

"[Hayder] remains one of our most adventurous, unpredictable and ambitious writers." --The Guardian

"Hayder offers both a riveting story and a nuanced, distinctly modern look at secrecy and publicity, belief and skepticism, normal and taboo, (in)sight and blindness." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An adventurous, edgy, literate writer." --Kirkus Reviews
