On All Hallow\’s Eve, I relish the concept of posting things that could potentially cause nightmares! And The Pumpkin\’s Lament by Josh Dale is truly perfect for fueling the inertia to put you in a very creatively haunted mood. Perhaps like thinking about lobotomies from One Flew Over the Cuckoo\’s Nest or maybe a psychotic writer chasing you from The Shining or my personal favourite cooked tongue from Warlock! Happy Halloween!
