Fifteen-year-old Rachel Stone and her family move into historic Seasonstown House. Then the terror begins - fires, intruders who leave no footprints, the frenzied destruction of the library. Who, or what, wants the Stones out . The police suspect terrorists, but is it something far more sinister?

When Rachel tries to discover the truth she gets caught up in a wild and dangerous plot. At Hallowe’en, nightmare becomes reality, when the unimaginable horror of an ancient curse comes to claim the family of Seasonstown House - and all that stands in its way is Rachel and a green-eyed wolf.

OCTOBER MOON was the first in the O'Brien Press OTHERWORLD Series which covers fantasy, horror, magic, the supernatural and science fiction. It was followed by a sequel entitled WOLF MOON.

October Moon caused the RTE Guide to call Michael Scott "The Master of Scariness" and from Orson Scott Card, world-famous fantasy writer: "A compelling story of dread, Scott is the master of the naturally unfolding mystery, and the tension never lets up".

Married, with two children, Michael Scott lives in Dublin.

Scott's grasp of the macabre and his confident moving between reality and fantasy provide a suitably scary fiction for dark evenings.

Robert Dunbar, The Irish Times

A really good tale of terror ... Just don't read it too late at night.

The Sunday Tribune

A compelling story of dread, Scott is a master of the naturally unfolding mystery, and the tension never lets up.
