Overview

Samhain, the ancient Gaelic term for the pagan harvest celebration has morphed in what we now know as Halloween. Major features of the holiday include costume parties in which guests portray historical figures or character types–the skimpier and sexier the costume the more fun the party.

Gene is all decked out in his gladiator costume ready for a wild party at his friend Jim’s house on the Intracoastal Waterway. Jim is rumored to be into Satanism and witchcraft so Gene is not surprised by the larger than life-sized statue of Lucifer in the foyer. More disconcerting is the miniature replica of the devil which appears at various times as Gene enjoys the pleasures of sex with a female who turns out to be a shemale, her straight male lover, a lesbian with a strap-on dildo, her female lover, and an oversexed young twink among the assortment of guests.

Gene drinks a lot but doesn’t do drugs so the confusion he faces as he’s brought before the Satanic statue is inexplicable; but the pain he is impaled on the Horned One’s large hard appendage is undeniable. His mystification increases over the next few days as Gene learns the significance of his fellow guests’ costumes, the implications of his own garb, and the true nature of the Samhain events.

Kiki Howell, an established erotic paranormal author has this to say about Samhain: “But, as I continued to read, the tale got increasingly darker, which being a big fan of Halloween, I found myself slinking down in my chair much like I do when the scary music from a horror film comes on. This was not so much because I felt it was going to be scary, but as the tone deepened and the images became more demonic, I was bracing for what was to come which was heightened by his constant entwining of the paranormal and the erotic elements.

Meet the Author

Kenn is a sixty something gay man living in the gay Mecca that is Fort Lauderdale, Florida. More than twenty years ago he submitted a short story to a magazine contest and won a year's subscription. Since then he has written many stories, none of which he submitted for publication until recently. He is thrilled to have many stories published in eXcessica.com as well as in three Alyson Books anthologies: Island Boys published August 2008 and Best Gay Love Stories 2009 and 2010 published November 2008 and 2009. Generally, he says he sees a hot male and constructs a fantasy story around him. Sometime, a situation inspires him and a story will take shape in his mind, which is then populated from his imagination. Kenn frequently incorporates the sights, sounds, and smells of South Florida in his stories. As a bureaucrat in local government, Kenn claims to find few outlets outside of porn fiction for his innate creativity and is pleased others are interested in reading what he writes.
