I just put up another Halloween story, this one titled Dessert, Anyone? It started life as a slightly nastier piece of work called The Fat Kid. Like Hidden House, I wrote it probably 10 years ago, and re-wrote it for publication in an online magazine’s Halloween edition. I hope you like it. And to quote Stephen King: my aim is to terrify. If I can’t terrify, I will try to horrify. And if I can’t horrify, I’ll go for the gross-out. That’s what I’ve done here: gone for the gross-out. Enjoy.
