Recommended reading for Halloween

Halloween haunted house with full moon

Anyone who knows me knows that October is my favorite month. I'm a Halloween fiend!

In honor of All Hallows' Eve, I present to you a list of scary books I recommend for the season (in no particular order):

1. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson 2. The Shining by Stephen King 3. Ghost Story by Peter Straub 4. Dark Companions by Ramsey Campbell 5. Salem's Lot by Stephen King 6. The Other by Thomas Tryon 7. The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Also try the collected works of Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft.

Check out The Year's Best Horror Stories edited by Karl Edward Wagner (1980-1994).

Happy reading!
