A couple of years ago, Neil Gaiman wrote this blog post proposing the giving of a scary book on Halloween. Since then, the proposed suggestion has evolved into a tradition known as All Hallow’s Read, and today, you can follow the hashtag #allhallowsread on Twitter.
And explore the website! Neil Gaiman gives a great video introduction, provides a list of book recommendations for All Hallow’s Read book-giving, and more.
The Mary Sue is celebrating as well, with Eight Favorite Literary Horror Heroines.
Happy reading, and happy Halloween!
