October is the Halloween month.

October is the month when the sheer volume of horror novels, anthologies, short stories, comic books, and e-books published practically triples. Not all horror published in October is Halloween related but they are timed to come out near that holiday that gives everyone -- including the timid and the disdainful -- permission to pick up a horror book or two and read if only to get into the spirit of the holiday.

Also published throughout the month of October 2017 are the ebooks in The Halloween Carnival Anthology Series book list. This is a five-volume anthology series of Halloween themed short stories and novellas.
