Susie Meyers was one of the most beautiful women you ever laid eyes on. She had long wavy blonde hair and a smile that would melt any man's heart. The story begins at around midnight on October 31, 1953. Susie and her friends downed too many beers at a Halloween party. Then decided to pile into her friend Tommy's car with his friends Jack and Karen, with their six packs of beer and drove down Hill Haven road. Just as they were all singing along with the radio, rain came pouring down and Tommy was having a hard time concentrating on the road because of the loud music and laughter coming from Susie and Karen in the back seat of Tommy's car. Jack was too busy handing out the beers to everyone to notice danger was on the way. Susie was the only one in the car not wearing her seat belt. The rain was really pouring down to where Tommy should have pulled off to the shoulder of the road and waited for the rain to stop before proceeding any further. Tommy just kept driving at a high rate of speed and drinking his beer when all of a sudden a driver on the other side of the road lost control of his vehicle causing Tommy's car to skid off the road and hit a tree head on. Unfortunately, Susie was the only passenger in the car that was not wearing a seat belt. Susie was ejected from the car and hit the tree head on decapitating her.

Die Jagd hat begonnen Sie nennen ihn den October Boy. Jedes Jahr zu Halloween erwacht er in einem Feld vor der Stadt zum Leben und setzt damit das immer wiederkehrende, gnadenlose Ritual in Gang: Die jungen Männer des Ortes lauern darauf, die blutrünstige Kreatur zu jagen und zur Strecke zu bringen, bevor sie selbst getötet werden. Auch Pete McCormick macht mit bei der Jagd. Dem Sieger und dessen Familie winkt genug Geld für einen Neuanfang fern der öden Heimat. Dafür ist Pete bereit, alles zu riskieren, sogar sein Leben. Doch bevor die Nacht zu Ende geht, muss er der grauenhaften Wahrheit hinter dem Ritual ins Gesicht sehen ... «Ein herausragendes neues Talent.» (Stephen King)

Halloween may be the most misunderstood holiday on the calendar, because many people don't realize the depth of its history. It has tremendous power and purpose, which benefit all of mankind-those who are with us now, and those who have moved into the hereafter. Among the dark shadows and foggy mist, the living have long searched the night on Halloween. Some catch a fleeting glimpse or vision of a loved one. Others are touched by the gift of a telepathic message. In some mysterious way, the spirits feel your every thought and hear your every word on this mystical, magical night. The Power of Halloween draws on author Diana Millay's heritage: witches and witchcraft. It does not come from history books but from stories passed on by generations of a family of mystics who have made magic since the beginning of time.

Irvings Geschichte vom kopflosen Reitergespenst, die er 1820 veröffentlichte, gehört in den Vereinigten Staaten zu den bekanntesten literarischen Stoffen. Wer sich für die US-amerikanische Kultur interessiert und gleichzeitig eine vergnügliche Lektüre sucht, kommt an "Sleepy Hollow"nicht vorbei. Der Verdienst, diese Geschichte auch deutschen Lesern erschlossen zu haben, gebührt zweifellos Adolf Strodtmann, der diese und weitere englischsprachigen Erzählungen im 19. Jahrhundert übersetzt hat. Allerdings ist diese Übertragung für heutige Leser streckenweise kaum noch verständlich, was die Freude, sich mit der Geschichte zu beschäftigen, deutlich trübt. Dieser Band enthält daher eine aktuelle Übersetzung, die exklusiv für ofd edition erstellt wurde.
