Horror at Halloween, Part Two, Eleanor
By Stephen Jones
A twisted tale of Halloween horror...
OXRUN STATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN DIFFERENT.
Nobody can really explain it. You just have to understand that bizarre things happen there. They just do. Weird things. The kind of things you don't even want to dream about in your worst nightmares.
Maybe it really is the rare conjunction of Mars and Saturn with Venus, lowering the barriers between our world and another, shadowy realm . . . or maybe it is just that the full moon always brings out the strangeness in that place.
Eleanor Trent's research into Halloween uncovers a secret history of ancient rituals and sacrificial rites that allow the creatures of the night to cross into our world and steal the souls of the living . . .
The fabric of the cosmos is unravelling and dark and dangerous things are leaking across the borders . . . For five unsuspecting teenagers, their lives will never be the same again as they discover the hidden terrors lurking beneath the surface of their quiet town and experience the most horrifying Halloween of them all . . .
This year in Oxrun Station, THE TRICK IS TO STAY ALIVE!
