I had a dream that I was running through a forest being chased by
two black cats with big green eyes.
They were also wearing scarfs and singing music from
The Nightmare Before Christmas.
I remember when my spouse took me to see this movie. I really didn't
want to go. I mean, it really didn't look like it would be something I
would enjoy. But my brother-in-law really seemed to like it, and he
promised us that we would love it. So, we went...
and totally fell in love with it. And what's not to love?
It's the perfect holiday movie filled with evil and goodness and
music and dancing and ROMANCE!
Well, anyway, when I woke up in the morning I was reminded of
the Halloween anthology,
Deadly Treats: Halloween Tales of Mystery, Magic, and Mayhem.
Then I thought... since I didn't get around to talking about this anthology in October like I had planned to do, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to have a few posts spotlighting this anthology in December.
And this is exactly what I plan to do!
You know, this isn't the first time a dream has led me to do something
crazy on this blog. And the fact that I'm typing this post doped up on hydrocodone has absolutely nothing to do with this idea. Okay, maybe it does a little. But if I were being honest... the real reason behind this crazy post is because I found that photo of the Pumpkin King dressed as
Santa Claus and I really, really, really wanted to use it. Plus, right now, as I'm
typing this post, this idea really sounds kind of fun.
So, over the next few weeks I'll be posting some short reviews about the stories contained in Deadly Treats: Halloween Tales of Mystery, Magic, and Mayhem, and together we can bask in the glory of all things creepy, magical, deadly, and ghostly... I can't think of a better way to ring in the Christmas Spirit. Can you?
