I’d been thinking about Halloween. Doug and I bought a big bag of Halloween candy at Costco (150 pieces!) for the kids that we expect will show up trick-or-treating. We bought an orange lightbulb to (temporarily) replace the front porch light and give it more of a Halloween atmosphere. We bought a (large, heavy) ceramic pumpkin for our front porch that looks realistic and has a battery-powered LED light inside that flickers like a candle. So we’re ready.

AwesomeDude has a bunch of new Halloween stories that you can read through the Halloween weekend. I wondered what I could do to celebrate the holiday on Codey’s World this year.

Our (usually) weekly posting always includes a Featured Story, something from the past that we think we think you’ll enjoy reading again — or for the first time. Last week I posted a Featured Story by Cole Parker that is a (spooky) Halloween story. Doing it again this week seemed a bit… too repetitious, perhaps. But not being able to come up with a better idea, I began to search through the Codey’s World archives looking for a Halloween story to post for this week.

As I was going through the list I realized that Codey’s World had posted a lot of Halloween stories. Really, a lot! So I got an idea. Instead of posting one Halloween story this week, I could post several in the New This Week section. But which should I pick? There were many! And, like the cartoon characters who have a lightbulb over their head to indicate they got an idea, I got an idea (sans an a actual lightbulb over my head).

So, this week I’m posting a list of the Halloween stories that were posted on Codey’s World, sort of like one of the Anthologies that we used to have. There’s a Halloween poem, a Halloween novel, and the rest are Halloween short stories. I think I got them all; let me know if you see any that are missing and I’ll add them to the list.

We also have The Legend Of Kiwakaazi ~ Book Four: The Messenger’s Message — Resurrection Chapters 15 and 16 of Book Four of a series of novels by Nanak.

So, this week’s Featured Stories item is the Codey’s World 2016 Halloween story anthology, titled A Halloween Reflection. I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as I enjoyed finding them for you.

You’ll also notice that instead of posting on Wednesday this week, I’m posting on Saturday. Closer to Halloween, is why! We won’t post again until November 7th. I’m taking next week off.

If you enjoy these stories, please let the authors know! Authors thrive by the feedback they receive from readers.
