Happy Halloween

Just a few of my favourite spooky classics to wrap up the season. These are all well worth a read. You may find, in fact, that they are so good you'll be wanting to re-read them every October.

I'd also have to give Stephen King an honourable mention here, but he and I had a small falling out when he got too gory. I don't do gore well and think it is quite unnecessary when the story is good and has a solid creep factor.

These are all indeed great reads!

Looks like a great, spooky list! Happy Halloween!

I've read all of these except the Gaskell one. Must look into that.

I agree with you on the gore. I don't find it frightening and I think a creepy story is much more effective than one full of blood and guts.

I love Woman in Black and Dracula, too. They're two of my favorite Halloween reads. :)
