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!

Attention all Horror Writers

Attention all Horror Writers, authors, and story tellers…

Do you have a horror story on the web that people can read for their Halloween enjoyment?

Looking for stories where readers can can click a link and go to read it right now! 

I’m inviting you to put your links in the comments so readers can enjoy your stories and capture the Halloween spirit. On a normal day this would probably be viewed as spam, but today I want you to promote your work with no hesitation.

*Only one story per author.

*Story has to be less than 2,000 words. Remember shorter is better on the web.

*No links to Amazon books or sites where they have to download, join, or put in emails.

To keep this simple and clean, only put – your name – story title – your link – in the comment post. If you have anything else to comment about, put it in a separate comment.

This has to be a totally FREE read.

Here’s My story entry: Aberration on Micro-Horror.com 

*******PLEASE READ*******

THERE WILL BE A CUT OFF FOR STORIES that I will promote in a second post before Halloween. It will most likely go up over the weekend of the 24th or Monday the 26th at the latest. So the cut off will be the 31st story or Thurs. Oct. 22nd. 
You’ll still be able to post your stories on this page but won’t be included in the secondary post.
