When you're registering for the Southern-Fried Halloween Contest, be sure to head on over to the Storyteller section and read my Halloween story, Pins & Needles.
This tale is previously unpublished, but it's not a new one. I wrote it way back in the early 90's, when splatter-punk fiction was all the rage and horror writers were pushing the envelope of good taste. It's one of my nastier offerings, about a sociopath named Zachary and his bowl full of "special" Halloween goodies. Hope y'all enjoy it!
