It’s that time of year again when people seem to crave books that ratchet up the fear factor. If you’re looking for ideas, stop by the “Powers of Detection” display in Reader Services focusing on investigations of the supernatural in fiction and nonfiction. You can also revisit some past lists we’ve created for the season – featuring everything from “Not So Scary” to “Terrifying Tales”- on our Holidays / Seasonal page of book lists (scroll down to Halloween).
Those who are avid readers of darker fiction (from horror to thrillers and suspense) will want to check out the online magazine, Dark Scribe Magazine – which describes itself as featuring “the books that keep you up at night.” Horror World’s Book Reviews will also provide plenty of titles.
So settle in with a scary read – but first make sure to lock the doors and turn on some extra lights!
