The End of Summer: Thirteen Tales of Halloween and Countdown to Halloween

The End of Summer:
13 Tales of Halloween

The world’s oldest celebration comes to life in The End of Summer: Thirteen Tales of Halloween, an anthology that honors the darkest and strangest night of the year. Each story is designed to be intrinsically and intimately about Halloween—its traditions, its myths, and its effects—and they run the gamut from horrifying to heartbreaking. Halloween night is the tapestry through which a haunted house, a monstrous child, a late-night drive to a mysterious destination, and other tales are weaved. Demons are faced, death is defied, and love is tested. And not everyone makes it out alive. The End of Summer has arrived.

“We are thrilled to release such a great collection of short stories. It is a great addition to our list of horror titles,” says Michael Aloisi, owner of AuthorMike Dark Ink.

“I’m beyond excited and terrified to have this collection coming out,” says J. Tonzelli, author of The End of Summer. “I began writing at a young age and I never really ventured out of the horror genre, much to the chagrin of my mother. Other kids grew up watching Fraggle Rock and The Goonies, but instead, when no one was looking, I was watching The Shining and Friday the 13th. By extension, Halloween has always been my most anticipated day and night of the year, and that’s something that’s never really gone away. The love of horror and Halloween are what I tried to capture in my collection.”

The End of Summer: Thirteen Tales of Halloween is available on Amazon and other online retailers, selected brick-and-mortar book stores, and the publisher’s website,

  1. I put my contribution to Halloween on last night. One I written years ago.
    Loved the post and a most enjoyable read.

  2. If everyone made it out alive, wouldn't be much of a horror story, now would it? Congratulations to your friend, J!

  3. so, when are we carving the pumpkins?

  4. I never thought of Halloween as the end of summer.

  5. I'm just now decorating for HAlloween... I know, I'm super late. I'm ashamed

  6. I'm so dang glad the long hot miserable summer of '13 is over, I might even read a horror story...;-)
