Halloween is just around the corner, which means it’s time for another great edition of Trickster’s Treats, the annual charity horror anthology of flash fiction brought to you by Steve Dillon of Things in the Well Publications.
I love horror. I love flash fiction. And I love donating to a worthy cause. Trickster’s Treats ticks all those boxes, and after contributing to last year’s inaugural edition, Trickster’s Treats #1, it’s great to have a new dark little tale included in Trickster’s Treat’s #2.
Trickster’s Treats #2 is jam packed with 34 bite-sized tales (and a poem) direct from the pumpkin patch, covering six different themes: Halloween House / Pumpkin Head / Trick or Treat / Haunted Trees and Forests / Bob Apple / Fancy Dress.
I chose to write to the theme of ‘Apple Bobbing’, and the result is a dark little offering titled Never Falls Far set amid the apple orchards of Tasmania’s Huon Valley.
I’m really happy to be sharing the Table of Contents with a fabulous bunch of writers, many of whom it’s a pleasure to call friends. Check it out:
Proceeds from Trickster’s Treats #2 are going to a very worthy cause. This year’s charity is Women’s Community Shelters who work to provide direct relief of suffering of disadvantaged and homeless Australian women by establishing new shelters in partnership with communities. We only need to pick up a newspaper or turn on the television to see the very real horrors faced by women across the country, so it’s wonderful to support a cause that is focused on women in crisis.
Happy writing, happy reading, and happy days …
