Happy Halloween from all of us here at Brief Encounters, to all of our followers/readers/lurkers/commenters, even if you live somewhere that Halloween is not celebrated. In North America it’s VERY popular, and of course comes with Trick or Treating, meaning huge quantities of candy in your house until well after Christmas. Since we can’t send you all candy virtually (wouldn’t it be great if chocolate would pop out of the disc drive?), I wrote a little PG rated Halloween story for you. Just click on the bats up top and it should take you to Scribd where you can download the story or read it on-line. I hope you enjoy it and special thanks to Josephine Myles for helping me out.
Hope you all have a spooky treat-filled day and I’ve posted one of my favourite Halloween songs from my childhood. A classic.

The week of November 7 – 11, we here at Brief Encounters Reviews are following up our very successful Petits Morts chocolate week in spring, with the final batch of stories in the very popular series. You can pick them up here.
We are so pleased to see Clare London joining the group, and while a bit sad to know this is the wrap-up to the series, believe we will love all of the stories as much as we did numbers one through ten.
Rather than talk about chocolate this time, we are focusing, as they say in real estate, on “location, location, location”. We are going to offer some touristic tips you can use when you get the chance to visit the cities and countries where each story in the last seven are set. Each day there will be one or two stories reviewed along with the tourist information for that location.
The schedule is below, but we hope you’ll join us for each day to see how it all comes out in the end. *sniffle*
