My partying and costuming will happen tomorrow. I promised niece Emmy pictures of my ball gown for the masquerade I’m attending, so I’ll post those, assuming they turn out.
In the meantime, ’tis the season for All Hallow’s Read, and the recommending of scary books. Some of mine:
The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells. My favorite scariest book, bar none. Seriously wicked.
The October Country by Ray Bradbury. Possibly the greatest horror/supernatural short story collection of all time. Includes the my all-time favorite story, “Homecoming.” (In other horrifying news, in googling info for this post I discovered that the first hit for “The October Country Homecoming” is a link to Cliffs Notes for “Homecoming.” For the single story. Dammit people, just read it, it’s not that long or complicated!)
Sunshine by Robin McKinley. This is truly the anti-Twilight. Girl lives in small town, girl meets vampire — and things do not go well.
What are some of your favorite scary books?
