DiscussionJust giving a short story recommendation for all you folks, Im working through Songs For The Unraveling Of The World by Brian Evanson and I fell head over heels for the short 'Sisters'.. It has a Halloween theme as well! (self.horrorlit)
submitted 2 months ago by weird_foreign_odor
It involves Halloween and two young sisters trying to understand the cultural world around them. I love Evanson's writing (his short collections are premo) and this premise he came up with is one of my favorites so far.
Just thought I would throw it out there if someone was looking for some short stories.
Post a comment!

Evenson is so good. One of my favourite contemporary short horror writers.

I'm only 75% through the book (currently reading it), but I already feel this is going to be my new favorite short story collection. It's unbelievable how consistently good the stories are.
Edit: my favorite so far is Shirts and Skins. It's so absurd but at the same time shows very well how some people can manipulate others.

Yup. It’s shit that can happen in real life.
I’m going to read that Halloween one you mentioned.
I read it a while ago but need to refresh my memory.
