Share a Scary Book on Halloween

Last year novelist Neil Gaiman launched an international Halloween tradition of giving scary books to the people you love. The All Hallows Read site has lots of book recommendations.

In 2010, Gaiman wrote: “I propose that, on Hallowe’en or during the week of Hallowe’en, we give each other scary books. Give children scary books they’ll like and can handle. Give adults scary books they’ll enjoy. I propose that stories by authors like John Bellairs and Stephen King and Arthur Machen and Ramsey Campbell and M R James and Lisa Tuttle and Peter Straub and Daphne Du Maurier and Clive Barker and a hundred hundred others change hands — new books or old or second-hand, beloved books or unknown. Give someone a scary book for Hallowe’en. Make their flesh creep … Give a scary book.”

What scary book will you give to a loved one? This GalleyCat editor will share a copy of Demon Theory by Stephen Graham Jones with a friend–it’s a postmodern horror novel that will break your mind into little pieces. Share your recommendations in the comments section and help other readers find scary books to give as gifts.
