UNDER THE HUNTER'S MOON - October 2018 Issue - Table of Contents

Enchanted Conversation Magazine
presents the
October 2018 Issue:
The Hunter's Moon is the name of the full moon that takes place in October, and we have a super-sized issue of 13 spooky and spellbinding original tales, with a bonus illustrated tale, to celebrate the month of the Hunter's Moon and All Hallow's Eve.

In this issue, our authors take us on a tour where fairy tales, legends, folktales, and myths meet at the midnight crossroads of the strange and bizarre.

Can a mythic creature exist if you don't believe in it?

What exactly is in a wishing well that grants the wishes?
Should you buy anything from a Midnight Market?
Who can help Cinderella when her usual fairy godmother can't?
How do you stop things from the Underworld from ravaging the harvest on Samhain?
When the dead want to tell their tales, who listens?
Plus more tales to enjoy throughout this month where enchantment lingers in the crisp night air...

not for fighting, but for killing...

to get what you want?

The lady laughed, and her hair spread
about the room like a spider's web...

avoid the nights of the Hunt anymore?"
Charlotte Platt

She walks down from her hidden citadel
to where the corpses call to her,
the dead who want to tell their tales...
Gabrielle S. Awe

The girls were still at the window, pale faces
fixed on the Duke of Albion.
"What's wrong?" Fran asked breathlessly...
Rebecca Katz

The maze is always larger
than the children anticipate,
And that's part of the trick...
G. D. Watry

I began to find ways to twist the pain
into magic, to suffer and writhe
and build the power inside me...

their eyes and dangled chains from
their wrists. "They'll never know it's us..."
