Featuring brand new short fiction from USA Today Bestseller Jaye Wells

Here, every day is Halloween, and the tricks and treats are endless. This collection of three supernatural tales ranging from magical realism to spine-tingling horror is sure to give you lots of chills and thrills.

THE WEREWIFE: One week after she is bitten by the dog-faced boy at a traveling carnival, a mild-mannered housewife gets a sudden, unrelenting craving for raw meat. She doesn't remember eating the cat or running naked through the park under the full moon, but her husband's getting strange calls from concerned neighbors. When he takes her back to the carnival a year later, looking for a cure, it'll either get better...or a whole lot worse. (previously published in the Carniepunk anthology)

THE BLUEST HOUR: A journalist travels to New Orleans to track down the mysterious "Soul Singers"--psychopomps who guide spirits into the afterlife. In this city known for music and its connection to death, a man can learn things he's not ready to know. (previously published in the Fantasy for Good charitable anthology)

THE DEADLINE: An ambitious journalist opens an investigation into the decade's old murder of a priest and a nun at a local Catholic college. She swears she'll do anything to earn her big break, but the price could be her very soul.
