The weather changes, the leaves begin to turn and I peruse the shelves of my library for horror books.
I started doing this last year, but this year I’m getting a bit deeper into it and making it a tradition. In preparation, I’ve landed on a series of classic tales that I’ve been meaning to read, but never quite gotten to. No more. It’s time to dust off these old tomes, grab a cup of tea and start reading.
This October, I’m reading these classics:
- “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving, the granddaddy of American letters.
- “The Thing on the Doorstep” by H.P. Lovecraft.
- “The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket” by Edgar Allan Poe.
- “The Dunwich Horror” by Lovecraft.
I’ve always meant to read Sleepy Hollow and Pym, so I’m excited to finally delve into those two. I intend to read the works in the order above and I hope you’ll join me. I will write an upcoming post on them and look forward to reading any input you guys have in the comment sections of the blog.
Until then, happy horror reading and I hope to see you a little further down the darkened footpath,
