Halloween Horror *Free Read 2015* Best Stories on the internet!

I’m hoping you horror fans will take the next few days and read some of the horror fiction posted here. If you find a story you like in particular, follow links and check out the author’s additional works. We are living in a unique time where traditional publishers are not willing to publish new writers but will only stick with the sure thing – the Top authors with long term proven sales records. That means many great writers will not get the support they need to grow.

These tales are short, what many would call flash fiction, great for a quick horror fix, perfect for reading on your morning commute to work on the subway or bus, ideal for reading all the way through on your lunch break at work or waiting in the car to pick up your children or loved one at school or work. Once again, thank you to all the writers submitting.

The Top 6 stories are showcased as the Editors Pick’s honorable mentions. The authors get to use the award logo to display on their website or post honorable mention and bragging rights to being Top pick’s in the annual,  Halloween Horror – Parlor of Horror’s Best Story on the internet! It would be nice if you link the image, or put a text link, to this award page if you can 🙂 (text link: Halloween Horror – Parlor of Horror’s Best Story on the internet! )

These tales capture a snapshot of the underground horror fiction prevalent on the internet today. They run the gamut from super horrific to whimsical satire. They are all great stories that I feel speak to horror fans better than many of the more upscale works and collections published every year in the connected literary circles. Read them yourself and see if you don’t agree.

Please Reblog if you can! 🙂 

It’s an entertaining post for your readers and a nice acknowledgement to our writers/authors!

  5. A good idea for Halloween! I have been working my way through the first set and there is a lot of different takes even within just those few tales. Plenty of time left until the witching hour, so I will get back to reading… Thank you for sharing them.
