Author Neil Gaiman is trying to start a new Halloween tradition called All Hallows’ Read. I think giving away books for trick-or-treat is a bit cost prohibitive, but there are plenty of great short stories that work just as well. The foundation of the horror genre is built on the short story, after all. So I’ll post a few of my favorites for this merry, scary night. Enjoy.
The Masque of the Red Death — Edgar Allan Poe
The Damned Thing — Ambrose Bierce
The Judge’s House — Bram Stoker
