Circus of the Damned (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #3)
For October, a selection from my not-so-guilty paranormal collection: book 3 of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series, Circus of the Damned. With Circus, Hamilton really hits her stride with a perfect mix of lust, gore, and humor. Feel free to skip the first two and dive right in here.

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is a small story, but a creepy story nonetheless. A young girl is lost in the woods. That's scary enough, but, this being a Stephen King novel, the creepiness factor is kicked up to 11. Also recommended: the audio production of this novel, read by Anne Heche. She does a phenomenal job conveying both the young confidence and the quavering fear in young Trisha's voice.

The Castle of Otranto
Horace Walpole's 18th-century novel is widely considered the first Gothic novel published, paving the way for future horror. Many of Otranto's characters and events have become cliche due to their overuse in the genre, but at one point, they were somewhat original.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
These are the classic scary stories you probably remember as a kid, checking them out from the school library and reading them with a flashlight under your covers. This new hardcover edition features illustrations from Brett Helquist. Helquist is no stranger to the morbid and macabre, being the illustrator for Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events.
