    I LOVE a great Halloween story and am always on the lookout for wonderful Halloween and fall-themed books to read in October! This collection had it all! Candy corn. Pumpkin patches. Pumpkin spice lattes. Spooky stories that will get you in a Halloween mood just as the weather gets colder. I loved baking in my kitchen while listening to hayrides and pumpkin carvings, haunted scarecrows, witches and summoning circles. I totally fangirled when I discovered this even had a spooky corn maze story, o I LOVE a great Halloween story and am always on the lookout for wonderful Halloween and fall-themed books to read in October!

I loved baking in my kitchen while listening to hayrides and pumpkin carvings, haunted scarecrows, witches and summoning circles. I totally fangirled when I discovered this even had a spooky corn maze story, one of my all-time Halloween favorites!! There was even a Baba Yaga and a Jack the Ripper retelling! Lots of black cats with slightly missing ears (ha ha 😊.) This has a little something for everyone with a variety of styles and genres, from sci fi to paranormal to YA, and all great reads. Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

    Wonderful and wonderfully varied collection of haunting tales perfect for late-night reading in the days leading up to Halloween. Without a stinker in the bunch, each story has its own unique style, setting, and mood reflecting the diverse array of writers involved in this anthology. From spooky houses to the far reaches of outer space, from foggy and historic London Town to popular modern phone apps and RPGs, these stories run the gamut from fantasy to scifi to speculative fiction and outright Wonderful and wonderfully varied collection of haunting tales perfect for late-night reading in the days leading up to Halloween. Without a stinker in the bunch, each story has its own unique style, setting, and mood reflecting the diverse array of writers involved in this anthology. From spooky houses to the far reaches of outer space, from foggy and historic London Town to popular modern phone apps and RPGs, these stories run the gamut from fantasy to scifi to speculative fiction and outright horror. Truly something for anyone's taste here. I enjoyed every story, but a few that stood out for me were "Hannah and Gregory" and "The Teller Tree" because I enjoy folkloric and fairy tale riffs, "Dawson Farms" because it played upon my own fears of claustrophobia and feeling trapped, and "My Own Dark Way" and "From Hell" for their riffs on a dark period of London history. But really, I could list every story here. There wasn't a single one that didn't thrill and entertain. From humor to horror, I can't imagine any reader who won't find something to fall in love with in this amazing collection of expertly written tales. Proceeds also earmarked for charity which I applaud and support as well. Highly recommended.

    I greatly enjoyed the rich and inclusive storytelling from this stable of truly talented writers. Very creative and fresh. I love compilations because I get to sample many perspectives and enjoy different twists and turns that I wasn't expecting. Way to go authors. I'll be looking for future projects.

    As somebody who had first look at ALL 14 stories in this spooky anthology, I was loving it. I got the Halloween thrills and chills, but also a lot of unexpected entertainment too. Some stories had humor that made me laugh out loud, others had twists that surprised me. I loved the variety of happy and “bad guy wins” endings. You just never knew what you were going to get as you read through the stories!

    Autumn Nights is a fast-paced and exciting read. The stories this collection contains are varied, meaning there is something for everybody. I didn't find any of the stories overtly terrifying. Rather, as the title suggests, they were just spooky. I feel this collection would be a good introduction to anyone looking to explore the genre. All that said, I did notice some formatting errors -- one story in particular, which I won't name.

I feel this collection would be a good introduction to anyone looking to explore the genre. All that said, I did notice some formatting errors -- one story in particular, which I won't name. Mostly missing punctuation and extra words, appearing just often enough to be noticed. The story itself was thrilling, and the errors didn't distract from that. The proceeds from this collection benefit charity, which is commendable, and only wants to make me recommend it even more.

    A great collection of spooky stories. I purchased this book because I love everything Cass Kim has written and she did not disappoint.i am looking forward to a new series from her as she expands on this tale. As I read the stories I found new authors to follow In particular I enjoyed Magicians Weekend by Martin Shannon. I need to read more about Eugene and Porter! Magicians Weekend added a touch of humor to the horror. I think there is something for everyone in this anthology.

    Full disclosure: I am one of the authors. That said, the other 13 stories are varied, engaging, seasonal and inventive in how they approached our common theme. I really think there is something for every reader in this anthology. I hope you check it out and support a worthwhile charity. Cheers, KA Miltimore

I really took my time with it and enjoyed the stories throughout this month, and I had such a fun experience with it this way. I loved lots of the stories! There were only a couple stories, literally two, that I didn't really enjoy very much, but as a whole, there were some solid spooky stories in this collection. My favorites were: Bloodlines, Dawson Farms, Location #23, and Courting Death. Thanks so much to Cass Kim for providing me with a copy to read and review! I enjoyed it so much!

    Disclaimer: I got this for free on Audible from Cass Kim, one of the authors. I liked all of the stories in this collection, some more than others, but all were enjoyable. I liked that they each had a shared element, though some kind of shoehorned that element in there, while others used it as a major part of the story.

    Good read I found the stories creative. It was interesting how the cat was included in each story. As I continued to read I found that I couldn't put the book down, I wanted to find out what happened next.
