While it's still a bit early for Halloween (although the shops already have the merchandise on display), I thought I'd share this excerpt from my short. In Hallow's Eve my hero feels the shifting season a little more clearly than the average mortal...
A chill breeze ruffled his hair as he left the bar, and he hunkered down inside his jacket. He could feel the change in seasons coming, and not just in the air. Normal human beings had all but lost the instinctive ability to sense the shifting balance of power between summer and winter, the greater presence of the unseen as Samhain approached. Humans used Halloween as an excuse to party. Hal's family never had.
I hope you enjoy autumn or fall (or spring for those on the opposite side of the world) as much as I do!
