Halloween! A horror writer's favorite holiday. Maybe you're thinking about the record of scary sound effects your dad used to play on the stereo before suiting up in his dashed-together mummy outfit and filling the crab-boiling pot with Hershey's Kisses and candy corn. Maybe you're remembering making out with your alien-green girlfriend after a marathon of mini-golf and Ed Wood movies.
