The chill in the air and the falling of leaves herald All Saints Day, Veterans Day, and the Day of the Dead, and thoughts turn to remembrance of those departed. Cemeteries become places of sacred pilgrimage for some, of morbid tourism for others. In the American South, communities have adapted their age-old burial and commemoration practices, as the Chinese, the Mexican, and African American communities have done. But Fall is also ghost season, no more so than in Southern Gothic tradition, and in this issue we offer you some deliciously spooky stories with which to curl up in front of a fire. Enjoy!
