October Ghosts and Autumn Dreams: More Poems for Halloween

JOURNEY ONCE AGAIN TO THE DARKNESS AT SUMMER'S END... In this brilliant follow-up to Past the Glad and Sunlit Season, K. A. OPPERMAN takes us to an enchanted autumnal land overflowing with candy-sometimes sweet, sometimes cursed by witches. Jack-o'-lanterns keep watch as we travel through Pumpkin Country, questing for the rich rewards that are to be found in contemplation of October's pastoral and many-colored tapestry. These stories told in rhyme, and melancholy hearthside meditations, are sure to rekindle a yearning for the Halloween season in hearts young and old. Open this book, and chase October ghosts through a realm of autumn dreams. The author has provided an extensive notes section which delves into his inspiration and creative process-and Halloween obsession-plus a brief essay on Halloween symbols, "Trick-or-Treat as Initiatory Rite, and Attendant Symbolism. With an insightful foreword by Adam Bolivar and loaded with atmospheric full-page black and white illustrations by Dan Sauer. "This book will cast its spell on your dark Halloween heart!" --MICKIE MUELLER, author of Llewellyn's Little Book of Halloween "This is a book to pick up anytime in the year when you need a dose of magic." --LISA MORTON, author of Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween "Open this book after dark, listen to the wind rage outside, and read-to yourself, to your children, to whoever might be listening in the shadows." --LESLIE PRATT BANNATYNE, author of Halloween: An American Holiday, an American History "KA Opperman's October Ghosts & Autumn Dreams: More Poems for Halloween is an enchanting dive into all the beauty that encapsulates the autumnal spirit. From catchy rhythms to recite while carving jack-o-lanterns in 'Carver's Rhyme' to a well-researched look into Appalachian customs in Appalachian Halloween, every line is beautifully crafted and sure to be appreciated by anyone who is a fan of the spooky season!" -HEATHER MOSER, Producer of Small Town Monsters
