But on Halloween, I revel in the thought.
Here are some creepy, scary, gory, or dark stories of mine for your Halloween frightification (the titles are links):
This pair of stories tell of two consecutive days in a dystopian prison of sorts. If I've done my job correctly, the endings of both stories become punchlines when you find out what is really going on and why.

I also have two other stories that are fitting for Halloween. One is unfinished and was conceived after reading some HP Lovecraft. The other is finished, and I liked it so much that I submitted it to a magazine -- so I don't want to post it here at the moment.
Both will undoubtedly be posted here eventually, so you'll be able to read them when they're up. Or next Halloween, when I recycle my stories again.
