The Halloween anthology title is going to be based on wells. Water sources of any kind, but especially wells.
It’s not a requirement for submission, the only requirement is that the story be Halloween based or if not Halloween, a scary story that would suit a Halloween campfire tale. Perhaps confusingly, the stories do not have to be scary at all as long as they are fixed to Halloween. Yeah, we don’t do things the easy way here.
The reason for the ‘well’ addition? If you look at the forewords for ‘Treeskull stories’ (UA3) and ‘The Gallows Stone’ (UA6) you’ll see that the titles are based on the editor’s experiences with the house he lives in. This year there is something interesting about the water source for that house. It’s a remote farmhouse with no mains water and the well the water comes from has a very long history, back to the year 877.
What is it? He’ll tell you in the foreword to UA9.
Basically, stories based around well water, or any water source, will get top billing.
But all Halloween/scary stories are welcome, of course.
