Tricks and Treats

Halloween 2014
Courtesy of

October is a time for stories. Scary stories, funny stories, twisted tales of terror. Since we at the Ramble are always talking about writing, but most of us aren't officially published, we thought we'd do something a little different this month.

We've each written a short story to share.  Some are lighthearted, and some are...well, not.  But all of them are somehow inspired by the season.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy.  And have a happy Halloween..
