As you may have guessed by the title of today’s article, I want to know about really scary books. I debated with myself on when I should post my Halloween topic. I decided to post it now because I thought you might want to actually read some of the scary books mentioned while the Halloween season is still going on, rather than after it ends.

I’ll start by mentioning a book I just recently read called Southern Gods by John Hornor Jacobs. This book gave me a serious case of the heebie jeebies. It wasn’t the blood and gore that gave me nightmares, it was the creepy things watching from a distance that gave me the bad dreams. You can see my review for a more detailed description. Neverland by Douglas Clegg is another one that I found creepy, though not quite on the same scale as Southern Gods.

Tell us about a really frightening book that everyone should be reading during the Halloween season. I’ll make it a little tougher by asking that you keep it within the fantasy or sci-fi genres. Paranormal romance, or any books with vampires, zombies, and other such ilk, counts.
