A Wee Tale of the Season

Samhain-tide is a time of great majik. The ancients knew it but we modern folk have forgotten and downplayed it, but we have not changed it. Oh, Christianity has changed the name, to Halloween, and merchandisers have turned it into yet another lucrative venture for themselves, but they have not changed its essence. It is still Samhain (pronounced SOW-in). It is the time of the year when the veils between this world and the next thin almost to nothingness and those who live in one freely interact with those in the other.
Elizabeth Rowan Keith has written a delightful and intriguing tale of what can happen at this special time of year. This wee tale - only some 1200 words long - will involve you and make you shudder, just as any good Halloween story should. Just keep in mind, though, that this could happen.
You can judge for yourselves by going to It will soon also be available on for the Kindle. Links to both are on the November First Publications website.
