The week continues with the eXcessica authors sharing their thoughts on the stories in the Four Seasons: Autumn 2009 anthology, editor Selena Kitt.

The autumn weather might be cooling things off, but you won’t need that sweater – we promise our erotica will warm you up! This time of year involves metamorphosis, from the changing of the fall colors to the places between, where the world wears thin and the strange and unusual happens. Join your favorite eXcessica authors in this sexy, sometimes spooky, seasonal anthology, bringing you the best of all things autumn! (Includes stories by Marshall Ian Key, Vivian Vincent, J.M. Snyder, Amicus, Varian Krylov, Giselle Renarde, Kenn Dahll, Sandra Fowke, Molly Wens, and Reno MacLeod and Jaye Valentine.)

Samhain by Kenn Dahll
Reviewer Kiki Howell
It was easy to get sucked into the story Samhain with the dark dominant voice of the narrator, his descriptions of the way his costume fit, of the costumes of the others, and of the satanic artwork which we are led to believe always adorns the home.   Of course, this being an erotic paranormal tale, clever details were added about the part of the narrator’s anatomy being titillated by the movement of his costume and the compromising positions of the others in costume as well.   Never a dull moment, that is for sure!
But, as I continued to read, the tale got increasingly darker, which being a big fan of Halloween, I found myself slinking down in my chair much like I do when the scary music from a horror film comes on.   This was not so much because I felt it was going to be scary, but as the tone deepened and the images became more demonic, I was bracing for what was to come which was heightened by his constant entwining of the paranormal and the erotic elements.
I can of course say no more without giving something away, but I will warn you this… be prepared to be kept on the edge of your seat, always questioning what is happening and never quite prepared for what comes next – this includes the sex scenes!
