It’s that time of year again! Havok’s favorite season—Halloween! But this year we’re doing things a little differently. 2017 has been The Year of the Mashup. From Literary Mutations to Dinosaurs to Mythical Clashes, our theme this year has involved tearing themes up and mashing them together with other genres to form all-new masterpieces. This last issue of the year, our Holiday Cauldron, does not disappoint, as it spins together all kinds of characters, observances, and festivities, and puts them in a casserole of celebration that can be devoured all year.
This month’s cover is worth seeing in person!
From Sherlock Holmes and Poirot to The Usual Suspects and CSI, mysteries captivate us again and again. Can the good guys figure out whodunit, or will the criminal escape to kill another day?
In this month’s issue of Splickety, we’re thrilled to bring you ten detective stories in which nothing is as it seems and danger lurks around every corner. Will you find the killer before our investigators do?
Is there anything better than a baseball game on a summer day? Hot dogs, sticky seats, the thrill of a homerun—and the possibility of meeting Mr. Right. In our August issue of Spark, we’ve got baseball, football, boxing and even croquet stories which will get your heart pounding…and not from the sports-induced exertion.
We’ve given you a bull rider who is saved by a rodeo clown, a Romeo and Juliet story set on the field (and given a happy ending), and our swoony staff feature that has me believing, for the first time, that bowling can be romantic. Turn up the air conditioning and enjoy the heat from our sporty summer issue of Spark.
