Happy Halloween from Strix Publishing and Happy Birthday to Orrin Grey!

Okay, so, it's a slightly belated birthday. Orrin should have been born on Halloween but like the rest of us he's impatient for the best holiday of the year and was born one day early. At any rate, please wish him a very happy birthday/Halloween!

We also have a little seasonal greeting for all of our backers. As we continue to work on Never Bet the Devil' we took the opportunity to fast-track the illustration for the all-new story in the collection, the Halloween-themed "Goblins." As always, M.S. Corley nailed the atmosphere of a graveyard at midnight, and the intrepid kids who choose to explore its mysteries.

Finally, just a few days remain on the Kickstarter for the next book from Strix Publishing, The Book of Three Gates, featuring a piece by Mr. Grey himself! As many of you know, Orrin is a tremendous fan of horror movies, and his piece for this book is titled " A Carpet of Snakes: "Yog-Sothery" and The Dunwich Horror (1970) ." This very weird—and very fun—piece explores the mysteries of the cult of Yog Sothoth and cult movies. Lots of cults. I hope you'll take a moment to check out The Book of Three Gates if you haven't already!

Thanks again for all of your support, and may your Halloween fires burn brightly atop the hills, among the standing stones!
