“Once upon a midnight dreary,” we decided to begin October with a reading list full of mayhem and a monster that “alone, in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil.” We’ll fill our month with accounts of “terrors of the night, phantoms of the night that walk in darkness” and those fantastic things that are “most unlikely but– here comes the big ‘but’– not impossible.”
Join us all through October to discuss your favorite Halloween stories. Leave a comment anytime before October 25th and we’ll add your favorite Halloween book to the list, to discuss on October 31st.
