Soon the end of October will be upon us, and it is a time for remembering the dead, including saints, martyrs, and all the faithfully departed believers, Halloween that is. As the days shorten and darkness abounds, we use humor and ridicule to reassure us and to confront the power of death. I guess this explains all the M&M and Peanut Butter Cup commercials we are now being bombarded with on cable. I actually watched a program the other day that had more commercials than program air time, so I opted to watch some sci-fi on DVD. It seems that modern entertainment focuses on scary horror tales and movies about Demons and Zombies and axe murderers and serial killers, etc. etc. etc …. So for our times, perhaps because of this the Book of Revelation by John seems to fit right in better with modern Halloween movies and entertainment and books than any other book in the Bible. Also with Halloween candy filling the stores for the last month tempting parents to fill their cupboards with chocolate Ghosts and other sweet treats to wire up the kids and give adults and seniors diabetic comas, perhaps, it is better to consider something less sweet to help those who can’t have candy to survive this time of year, like a good book to have meaningful fun with and to definitely last longer than a bag of candy.

I am still working on my next Old Testament Word Search Book and it is on schedule for the end of February.
This weekend, I had some fun on Saturday when I wrote a 2300 word futuristic short story for my short story anthology coming out for Halloween. Then monday night, for the weekly Indies Unlimited contest, I wrote this short flash fiction tale about some telemarketing vultures doing take out. Think about it, haven’t you ever wondered why Telemarketers are called Vultures? Well most telemarketers are just like the birds in this story, in that they will say anything to sweeten and fatten you up and then … Slam! Bam! They strip your scrawny hide and pick your bones clean. Next Victim! To read more Click Here.
I was off this week and am back now, for Halloween. The one night of the the year we can all play dress up in pirate or zombie outfits and roam the streets going door to door with our kids, all in the name of scaring away the evils of our world. Remember, the flash lights, and keep an eye out for vampires, zombies and Tinker Bell; perhaps with luck you will see Peter Pan with Captain Hook’s Pirate Ship in the night sky. Let us hope it does not rain.
