Curl up and Scare Yourself Print

Jacket covers from three books on this list - Dracula, It, and Heart-shaped Box

In honor of Halloween, Flavorwire recently posted a list of the "scariest books of all time." Whether you agree or not with their choices, autumn is definitely a good time of year to curl up with a book guaranteed to give you the shivers. The list ranges widely - from true classics by Henry James and Edgar Allan Poe, to classics of the horror genre by H.P. Lovecraft and Robert R. McCammon, to contemporary authors writing scary stuff.  Happy Haunting!  (View titles in the library catalog.)  If you find titles on the full Flavorwire list not available at the library, fill out a Beyond the Catalog request and we'll try to find them for you!
