Halloween 2020 Reading List

Halloween is just around the corner and it’s one of my favorite holidays. In recent years, I haven’t indulged much in the holiday spirit, treating each day just like the last, but I’m switching that up a bit this year and going to celebrate by strictly indulging into horror reading during October.

This list will consist of major works and indie ( a.k.a. lesser known ) titles:

Clive Barker’s Books of Blood: Volume One

I snagged this one at 2nd & Charles last night. It’s not suppose to be released until tomorrow, according to Amazon, ( the attribution to the film edition ) but I still snagged it somehow. I almost got Lovecraft Country, but decided on this instead. Looking forward to checking out the Hulu film after the book.

grotesquerie by Richard Gavin

I’ve had my eyes on this one for a while and I’m bracing myself for the supposed dense reading. I’m going to take my time.

Wytches Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder

This will be a TPB re-read. Loved it before, I’m sure I’ll love it again.

Darke Awakening by Lee Hall

Check out my release announcement about Darke Awakening to see why I’m reading it for the Halloween season.

Corpsepaint by David Peak

I chose this book out of my recent feature, The Horror Bundle From Word Horde. Not because of the reviews, just because the content / story line appeals to me the best out of the other books in the bundle.

AND if you managed to read this post all the way to the end, here is some bonus content from Jonathan Thornton @ The Fantasy Hive that spiked my interest – British Weird – Selected Short Fiction, 1893-1937 – Edited by James Machin (BOOK REVIEW).

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley

[…] October is almost over and the horror reading will be winding itself down, here shortly. It was a great month for reading and writing, but it will be a nice change of pace because now I have several cobwebs growing in my brain. I didn’t quite read everything I meant to with Corpsepaint by David Peak and Wytches Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder sadly taking a bench seat on the Halloween 2020 reading list. […]
