Just a quick note that Jack-o'-Spec is now open and receiving submissions. I've only read a few of those received so far, but I'd like to reiterate what I've clearly stated on the guidelines page--I'm looking for stories and poems with a Halloween theme--Halloween traditions, legends, etc. (Feel free to invent traditions and legends, but Halloween must be your focal point.) If someone reading your story or poem out of context (i.e. not in the anthology) would not associate it with Halloween, then it won't be right for this anthology.
