Here are sixteen chilling, never-before-published tales that explore every aspect of our darkest holiday, Halloween, coedited by Ellen Datlow, one of the most successful and respected genre editors, and Lisa Morton, a leading authority on Halloween.

In addition to stories about scheming jack-o’-lanterns, vengeful ghosts, otherworldly changelings, disturbingly realistic haunted attractions, masks that cover terrifying faces, murderous urban legends, parties gone bad, cult Halloween movies, and trick-or-treating in the future, Haunted Nights also offers terrifying and mind-bending explorations of related holidays like All Souls’ Day, Día de los Muertos, and Devil’s Night.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Editors Datlow and Morton have filled this book with an assortment of Halloween treats whose horrors transcend their holiday setting.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Solid and refreshing, featuring great stories that don’t resort to overused tropes and revealing the full breadth of today’s horror, from surreal to creepy to full-blown, visceral terror. ”

    Booklist

  • “In the horror field it’s pretty much a given that every writer has at least one good Halloween story up his or her sleeve. Haunted Nights…bears this out. The stories offer a wide variety of approaches to Halloween and all its trimmings, and several are arguably among the strongest work that their authors have produced and are likely contenders for consideration for year’s-best roundups.”
