So it seems there are a few fellow bookworms out there- does anyone have some good suggestions for some classic Halloweeny novels/ short stories? Last year I read Dracula during October, which was a really great read (but a disappointingly boring film). I really enjoyed the epic story and gothic imagery, and it made me wish so badly I could have read it in a time where it wasn't so obvious already it was going to be a book about vampires. I would have loved to have been genuinely shocked and terrified like its original audience. I really recommend it if you haven't read it yet.
The year before that I read Turn of the Screw and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, before that Something Wicked This Way Comes, and I've already read the really obvious ones like Frankenstein and Edgar Alan Poe's stuff. What other things have you guys read that get you in the Halloween mood? (I'm more interested in classic horror than in any really dark or gorey stuff)
