The October King
by Zachary Owen
“October is a time of horror. This is the only time the channels are right, the only time the magic really works. A time pitiful few are open to my bits of dread, my slices of terror. And above all, little one, October is the only environment I can thrive in, for I am the October King.” So spoke the King of Terror to his latest victim, who is forced to read his stories. The alternative is murder.
