“Where there is no imagination, there is no horror.” — Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet

Okay, I admit it: I buy Halloween candy “for trick-or-treaters,” but usually most of it has mysteriously disappeared by the time the 31st rolls around. Why not enjoy a more grown-up treat of a spooky story this Halloween? Whether you’re a fan of vampires, ghosts, or just anything that goes bump in the night, we probably have a book that will send chills down your spine!

Here are just a few classic fearsome favorites:

At the Mountains of Madness by H.P. Lovecraft

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny

The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe

Shadowland by Peter Straub

The Shining by Stephen King

The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris

Enjoy these terrifying tales and remember…it’s okay to sleep with the light on.
