New Halloween Anthology Comprised of All-Connecticut Lineup

Some of Connecticut’s most talented literary minds are featured in a new anthology from Books & Boos Press. Tricks and Treats: A Collection of Spooky Stories by Connecticut Authors showcases scary stories from famous past Nutmeggers Mark Twain, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and John G. C. Brainard. Contemporary Connecticut authors include Stacey Longo, Melissa Crandall, G. Elmer Munson, Kristi Petersen Schoonover, Dan Foley, John Valeri, and Ryanne Strong. 

The collection was edited by Longo, who pursued the project “to celebrate our state’s rich literary heritage, and to pay homage to New England’s ghostly history.” Each story comfortably fits in the genre of dark fiction. “Readers may be surprised to find that Twain, Stowe, and Perkins, for example, had ghost stories among their past published tales,” said Longo. The collection will be released on September 1 “just in time for the change in season.” 

A trailer for the book can be viewed on YouTube at https://youtu.be/GkaGyqts8oE. The anthology will be available to order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.
