Abstract

Tod, an American living in rural England, is dismayed by the lack of interest in the Halloween traditions he is accustomed to: the candy, the costumes, the trick or treating. But when he makes the mistake of encouraging some local youths to stop by his house on Halloween night, he finds himself confronted with the more ancient traditions of Samhain - the Gaelic festival that influenced the modern holiday. Critic Gareth Jones wrote a review of the story, and the issue in which it appears, in which he described it as 'eerily amicable, yet subtly threatening, ending on a thoroughly disquieting note that embeds in the brain a cliffhanger loaded with festering doubt and unresolved tension.'
