Horrorween (Orangefield Series Book 1) (English
For untold ages a dark presence has shrouded the small town of Orangefield. In addition to the plentiful pumpkins that gave the town its name, Orangefield is home to the dreaded Lord of Death himself, Samhain. Despite rumors of his existence, and rare, brief sightings, Samhain has long been content to leave the local inhabitants alone. But that's about to change...When a boy from the town disappears, detective Bill Grant is convinced Samhain is responsible. But even Grant cannot imagine the horrific extent of the Lord of Death's grand scheme. As what may prove to be the last Halloween approaches, the fate of the world will depend on the survival of a small group of people, pawns in a terrifying game of cosmic proportions.Praise for HORRORWEEN: "Sarrantonio paints portraits with words and imagery as well as anyone writing today." --Shroud Magazine.

Hallows Eve (Orangefield Series Book 2) (English
After twelve years, Corrie Phaeder is returning home to Orangefield—the last place in the world he wants to be. Orangefield is a town of nightmares, a town where the impossible and the horrific happen all too often, where ghosts rise screaming from their graves, and where trick-or-treating goblins have no need for scary costumes.Something is waiting patiently for Corrie's homecoming. This Halloween, a messenger from a realm of shadows, with the body of a scarecrow and the head of a pumpkin, will usher Corrie into what might prove to be his last nightmare, a battle to the death with the ultimate darkness.Praise for Hallows Eve:"If you’re in the mood for an ultimate Halloween-theme story then Hallows Eve will deliver you the goods." -- Buried.com "Hallows Eve in an entertaining read, and Sarrantonio has a knack for detail. The way he describes the town of Orangefield leading up to Halloween really makes you feel like you're there. It's a skill that a lot of writers just don't possess, and it's sad when they try and pass off like they do. Al's the real thing in that department..." -- Dread Central, presented by The Horror Channel "Samhain, the scheming Lord of Death, is back for more Halloween mischief..." -- Publishers Weekly
