Hallowe'en is over, but I shall leave the Hallowe'en header up for a bit because I like it. Also, it's still Hallowe'en for Marie et al. Butmostly it's because I like it.

If you're interested in the progress of the All Hallow's Read poster contest, you should know that the deadline for submissions has passed. You can see many of the submissions linked in the comments here. Others are visible on Flickr under the tag "allhallowsreadposter." Despite the fact that I and many other people have, in fact, used this tag, probably at least two-thirds of us aren't showing up. No one can quite explain this.

Incidentally, I don't expect to win. There are many fantastic entries, and I have gambled on the Overly Sparse Approach, with no words on the poster besides the URL of the AHR website. As far as I can tell, I am the only person who has done this. The other entrants probably have the right idea. At any rate, I very much enjoyed creating Creepy Hand Girl. I'm sure she will be popping up on this site at random spooky moments. I've already used her in a PowerPoint presentation (it was for a lecture on Canadian ghost stories, so there you go).

Panel 1: Marie, Casey, and Barbara are sitting on Sara's bed in Davies College. Sara approaches them.

There are a few people outside who want to see you.

Casey: Not...Frankie...?

Panel 2:

Sara: No, I told her no. It's just Steve and Reg and Tom.

Panel 3:
Casey grasps Marie by the shoulders.

Casey: Oh! I was in a band with them. Wasn't I? Was there an accordion? And Sherlock Holmes? It's all gone fuzzy. Why are you two clear while everything else is lost in the fog?

Panel 4: Casey, hugging himself, collapses onto Marie's lap.

Marie: Not, on balance, Casey's best day ever.

Casey: And now I remember a mouse.

Alt-Text: Was the mouse dead...or alive? Perhaps it was in a box?
