When the End is Near: Remember the Ghoul Time of Horror Week!

Posted by Hayley on October 30, 2015
We've been having a spooktacular time during Horror Week here at Goodreads. We shared two-sentence horror stories, exclusive book excerpts from upcoming horror books, and 13 chilling tomes to get you in the Halloween spirit. Plus, some of the greatest horror writers—Justin Cronin, Lois Duncan, R.L. Stine, Kendare Blake, and Clive Barker—carved out some time to answer questions from readers all week.

Alan Moore has been silent. Until now.










Click here to see all 75 answers from Alan Moore, whose book, Jerusalem, will be published by Liveright in Fall 2016.

But that's not all! Find out who will be joining the undead in a zombie apocalypse (watch out for Rhiannon Frater!), and whose house to hit up for Halloween. (Hint: Full size candy bars at Scott Hawkins' house!) Also, finally an answer to this essential question: What is up with that duck in Christopher Golden's picture?

More great responses from horror writers below! We witch you a Happy Halloween!

Nishant I loved Alan's answer to "What scares you?". What a beautiful way to think about fears and desires!


Ertica*~She'sABookBirdy~*Castley This is really scary.

Caroline I hope Tamara Jones moved house .I certainly would have, after having that experience!!

Erma Talamante Loved hearing Alan Moore's take on Halloween. And, I have to say, I was laughing aloud at the end!

Tamara Jones' was eerie and left me with a chill. Some things just can't be explained away!

And as for scary - Alan Moore hit the nail on the head with his mention of a tumor... One of the most fear-invoking real-life scenarios...

Great collection!
