Today’s Halloween and we’re talking about horror. We’ve got to begin with the classics. Autumn is so scared of the Amityville Horror book, she’ll get rid of it anyway possible. Apparently the book is much worse than the movie.  Another classic our hosts mention is The ExorcistThe Yellow Wallpaper creeped into the discussion. Overall, homes, houses and haciendas appear to be the center of creepiness.

We also talk about Stephen Graham Jones, a favorite for modern horror, who writes both short stories and longer prose. Discussion of his works leads us to books about creepy vegetables and the knowledge that mushrooms are not vegetables, minerals or animals.

Finally, learn about our new ALL-READ, Now is the Time to Panic, which we will discuss Dec 5!
