A free Neil Gaiman audiobook for “All Hallow’s Read.”

The amazing Neil Gaiman is even more amazing than I thought.

Have you heard of All Hallow’s Read?

Yeah, I hadn’t either.  Basically, it’s a movement, triggered by Mr. Gaiman, that instead of candy on Halloween, people give out scary books.   Which is just about the best idea I’ve ever heard.

This year, Neil has written and recorded a a short story – “Click-Clack the Rattlebag” – that you can download for free from audible.com in honor of All Hallow’s Read, and (AND!) there’ll be a donation to charity made simply for your downloading. Right? Win-win!

From audible.com —

“Two years ago, author, narrator, and screenwriter Neil Gaiman proposed that, every year for Halloween, people give each other scary books. We couldn’t agree more. So this year, we’re putting our money where our mouth is. Scare yourself or someone you love with the never-before-seen (or heard) short story Click-Clack the Rattlebag, written and narrated by Neil himself, and Audible will donate $1 for every download through Halloween up to $100,000 to the education charity DonorsChoose.org.”

Download “Click-Clack the Rattlebag” free from audible.com now! (You do have to sign up, but if you have an Amazon account, you can use that!)
