Blessings, one and all. It's that fabulous time of year again where the veil between the worlds grows thin. Fancy a little fright? Here's my suggested Samhain - or Halloween - reading list.
A novella about a young girl who loses her face in a horrific accident.
Confined to the house, she is forced to put up with her mother's increasingly vindictive behaviour.
This is an oldy from me. It's the story of an uncle who doses his niece with LSD before killing her. When a young girl wakes from a coma thirty years later, things are not what they seem.
If you like your fiction spooky rather than gory, this is a good starting place. Paranormal investigator David Ash heads to an isolated house following stories of unexplained phenomena.
Truth proves far darker than the tales.
This is perhaps the only book I ever had to put down because it creeped me out too much. A fabulous tale of violent womb-monsters that tear their way into the world and cause havoc.
Don't eat before reading.
A modern classic. The story of a man who tries to collect the essence of people - their smell. Gathering the scent of the most beautiful women he finds. A process they cannot survive.
