How it’s October, and already half way through it, is beyond me. Even the trees seem a bit surprised; many of the leaves have begun to fall before they’ve had a chance to fully change color. Some get kind of dull, then just let go. A side effect of a hot summer that means raking and bagging the countless things without having the brief enjoyment of the colorful foliage. Just the mess.
But I did manage to grab a few books appropriate for the month. Halloween and all that. (To be honest, I don’t care much for Halloween anymore. Frigid, mid-winter nights are far more haunting. October is dying. January is stone-dead. Ghost stories are good year-round though.)
Speaking of horror stories, I’ve got the first episode of Vintage Horror Presents thrown together. I should be posting that instead of this. It’ll be up soon.
