Halloween Half-Pagers: A Vampire’s Dream Vacation

What started with a dream ended with a scream. I had always wanted to visit Transylvania, with its crumbling castles and old towns. I would often imagine myself wandering through the ruins at night surrounded by wolves and bats, and then walking through one of the medieval towns and feel the peoples’ fear and superstition. […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: That Darn Book

I told the police officer I’d never seen the book before and had no I idea why there was blood on it. The book itself was a large ugly looking tome, with its dirt brown cover inlaid with metallic lettering for its title Libellus Autem Lycanthrope. The book was a thousand pages written in some […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: Must Halloween End?

It was the morning after Halloween night, Jacob looked at the litter of candy wrappers on the sidewalk in front of his house and felt sadness that the night was over. Reluctantly, he looked at his yard and all the decorations he would have to take down. The sheet ghosts he had hanging from a […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: 8) House of the Jack-o-lantern

Brady, Archie, and Dan stood before the last house on the street. Brady tried to motivate his friends, promising that after the frustrating, freaky night they had experienced, this last home was sure to have the mother lode of candy.

Looking along Blackbird Street, Brady, Archie, and Dan saw that they were down to only a few more houses.

Stepping up to a […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: 6) House of the Bloodless

The next house that Brady, Archie, and Dan approached in their Halloween quest for candy looked almost like a very small castle. It had a round stone tower in the front with battlements up top. Rubber bats hung from the top bouncing up in down, mist rose up from the ground, and the sound of […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: 5) House of the Cauldron

Brady, Archie, and Dan stood before the next house on Blackbird Street debating whether to treat there. The place was a dump, a little bit bigger than a shack, made up with wooden boards and a small metal chimney. The only decorations were stick figures strung up along the place. Wanting to hit all the […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: 4) House of Haunted Treats

The third house on Blackbird Street that Brady, Archie, and Dan arrived at actually looked spooky. Old and abandoned the three story house appeared to have no one at home. Undaunted, Brady went up to the door and cried out, “trick r treat!” To the boys’ surprise the front door opened, but the darkened entry […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: 3) House of Scary Sweets

The next house on Brady, Archie, and Dan’s trick or treating tour of Blackbird Street was a small dumpy home that was painted dark brown. Its sole Halloween decoration was a jack-o-lantern with a large mouth. After ringing the doorbell, an old lady wearing an apron greeted them. Cackling, she reached into a large bowl […]

Halloween Half-Pagers: 2) House of Knives

Brady, Archie, and Dan approached the first house on the left side of Blackbird Street, with their bags waiting to be filled with Halloween candy. The house was small and unassuming, with its plain white painted wood paneling. There was nothing creepy about the place. They rang the doorbell not knowing what to expect. The […]
