Join Sam and his friends from both sides of the veil as they celebrate the Pagan harvest festival of Samhain in Sam & the Samhain Scare, the third installment in Kathleen Converse’s Wheel of the Year series. Readers will enjoy rejoining a familiar cast of characters as Sam grapples with fears surrounding some of the more scary associations with late October, eventually learning the Samhain isn’t scary at all.


As the friends are joined by the spirits of their ancestors, they fire scry, read tarot, and share a harvest feast. Featuring illustrated rituals and spells after the story and backmatter on the history of Samhain, Sam & the Samhain Scare is perfect for families with an established Samhain celebration or those wishing to explore Pagan holidays for the first time.
