“A Cold Greeting” by Ambrose Bierce

Friendship can be a strange thing. What happens when it seems that a friendship…dies? You can be my friend, especially on the social media, like Twitter at @HalloweenHaunt and on Facebook, where I confess I only have a page you can like, not “friend” me. But we can pretend, right? Hear more gothic fiction from Ambrose Bierce and more at TheHalloweenHaunt.com.

Read along at Legends of America.

Black Cats

Few things say Halloween like black cats, although they are delightful any time of year. Thank you, Robin, for another excellent suggestion on Facebook. I tweet at @HalloweenHaunt. Much more can be found at TheHalloweenHaunt.com.

Wikipedia will tell you much about the history of black cat superstition.  I will tell  you much about witches (with a bit about their familiars thrown in) at Witches.TheHalloweenHaunt.com.
