|The TL/DR Synopsis||Synopsis: The Ten Halloweens Project, a decade-long art project, is back with a second round of free stuff (plus another chance to get last year’s stuff). Disappears at midnight, November 1, for another year.
Links to: Ten Halloweens home page with links to free downloads.
Last year saw the inaugural iteration of the Ten Halloweens project, a decade-long art project running from 2013 to 2022.
Each year I post a new, free download, but different iterations of the project come in different forms. Last year it was poetry, this year it’s a short story, next year it may be original music, a series of visual images, a video, or just about anything else that can be delivered over the internet.
Each iteration is only available from mid-October to midnight on November 1. After that it disappears until the following year, when it’s joined by a new iteration.
And each iteration also includes an annual image, to help set the mood. The image may be related to the main work or it may stand alone.

This year’s work is a short story in ebook form (ePUB or Kindle). The Terminal Case describes a haunting–not in an old, gothic mansion, but in a bright, sleek, modern airport. It may be a supernatural tale, or it may simply be a story told by an unreliable narrator whose grip on reality is slipping.
And, as will happen each year, when the new iteration arrives the old one(s) reappear during the same window of time. So if you missed out on The Haunt in the Meadow last year, you can catch up now.
And mark your calendar for next year. Who knows what you’ll find at Ten Halloweens in 2015?
The image below is the annual image from last year, “The Desert Dreamed the Sun Chased the Sea Away,” which comes from my series The Desert Contains Everything.
