Quickly, a few Halloween appropriate stories (I’m not a TOTAL Halloween humbug):
Over at Ars: The Call of Cthubuntu
An artifact that prophesies their grim return has come into my possession: the dread Cthubuntu Linux distributionan arcane relic of ineffable power that originated in a dark time beyond reckoning. The incomprehensible apparatus is an otherworldly chimaera forged by alchemical arts unknown to modern science.
And Homeless in Hell, by one of my favorite authors, Orson Scott Card. Technically a Christmas story, but you’ll get it after you read it.
