‘Tricks and Treats’ Available As An Audiobook

Tricks and Treats: A Collection of Spooky Stories by Connecticut Authors is now available as an audiobook on Audible. This collection of is narrated by Mark Rossman.

You can play an audio sample here.

The anthology 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 paperback edition of Tricks and Treats can be obtained here. The e-book can be purchased here.
