This is a re-issue of a spooky short story first published in one of Torquere’s Scared Stiff Taste Test mini-anthologies. It’s been fully revised and re-edited, and is around 15-20% longer than the previously published version (and, of course, it has a lovely new cover!)
The memory of this party could haunt him forever…
Dragged along to a haunted house by his mates, Sam’s at the Halloween party from hell—the guy he fancied has turned out to be a bigot, and Sam has just outed himself to his whole football team.
Escaping to the garden, he meets James, an enigmatic stranger with a mischievous smile, and the evening soon takes a turn for the better. The night may be chilly but the heat between Sam and James is hotter than Hades.
But James has a role to play in the evening’s ghostly entertainment, and it’s a story with a deadly ending. Unless Sam can change the script and stop history repeating itself, “till death do us part” will come sooner than he thinks.
