That time is coming around again. This thread is for members who like to orient their reading around the thematic possibilities of October.

Feel free to share your October Scary Reading adventures with us.

Simon (friedegg) | 133 comments I am planning, once again, to devote the month of October to horror but only one of which could I describe as classic horror (although I'm hoping the other two might at least be in the classic vein):

Mrs. Midnight: And Other Stories by Reggie Oliver
The Birds & Other Stories by Daphne du Maurier
Blood Will Have Its Season by Joseph S. Pulver

I'll have to see if I have time for any more...

That looks like a good list, Simon. I read a story by Reggie Oliver and definitely want to read more.

Grady Hendrix | 9 comments Let me know what you think of ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD. It was recommended to me, and depressed me immeasurably. But DARK LADIES is great, and I loved REBECCA so much more than I thought I would. Better than the movie! Which surprised me.

I'll probably start it this week, since I can't renew it. Looking forward to it!
