On this night when the barrier between the material and spirit worlds is at its thinnest - when all manner of ghouls and ghosts lurk in the deep woods and wail across bleak moors - I like nothing more than to wallow in the glow of jack o' lanterns and sip pumpkin beer...and carve pumpkins like the fellow you see above. I'm quite happy with this chap, fashioned by my own fair hands. ;)
Anyway, I hope you raise a glass of whatever you're drinking and toast the spirits that roam the world tonight...
Speculative Horizons is a UK-based blog dedicated to discovering the best in speculative fiction. Here you'll find book reviews, author interviews, artwork for upcoming releases, and commentary on all aspects of the genre.
A child of the eighties, I was raised on a steady diet of Ghostbusters, Thundercats and Transformers. I eventually discovered fantasy books via the awesome Fighting Fantasy series, and my love of fantasy led me to create Speculative Horizons, a popular book review blog I ran for three years. In 2010 I joined Orbit to work as an editorial assistant.
