MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE collects brand new fiction alongside Chapman’s acclaimed novellas, ‘The Last Night of October’ and ‘Vaudeville’.

The collection also features an introduction by multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author, Lisa Morton.

Other testimonials from peers:
“Heinous and horrific and full of simmering suburban suspense, these tales of Halloween and hauntings will have you checking you’ve locked the doors. A masterpiece of the macabre, Midnight Masquerade is Chapman’s finest collection yet.” —Lee Murray, USA Today Bestselling author and four-time Bram Stoker Award® winner.
“An adolescent prank goes awry, a traveling salesman takes a disturbing detour, a children’s entertainer hits rock bottom, and an author’s morbid research catches up with her. In these and other tales, Greg Chapman digs deep into the darkness of domesticity, pulling skeletons from cobwebbed corners and scaring the bejesus out of his fans once again. Midnight Masquerade is not just a collection of tales set on the spookiest of evenings; it is a cornucopia of nightmarish possibilities certain to unnerve readers.” —Rebecca Rowland, author of White Trash & Recycled Nightmares
