Halloween is tomorrow, and there’s no better way to get into the spirit by reading some scary stories. Here’s a list of 17 that you can read right now that some of our PBQ staff finds positively spine-tingling.
Want to read an old classic? Try “The Monkey’s Paw”, a haunting tale that boils down to being careful what you wish for.
In the mood for a story that’s more about learning to live with a disease that will not only kill you, but turn you into a self-mutilating zombie-like patient? Check out Octavia Butler’s “The Morning and the Evening and the Night,” which, while not heavy in scares, per se, is rooted in the fear we all have of losing what makes us human.
Or how about delving into the campy yet chilling “Children of the Corn” by horror master Stephen King? You can read these and many more at the link below. Happy haunting!
