Books for Halloween

Earlier this month, Bear Pond Books participated in the Booksellers' Wisdom column at Shelf Awareness, in a three part series on scary books. "Scary" here meant anything that happened to have scared us when we read them (Velveteen Rabbit? Terrifying). Here's what we and other sellers had to say:

Scary Books Part 1

Scary Books Part 2

Scary Books Part 3

And continuing on the Halloween Week theme, a few other lists:

13 Books That Are Scarier Than the Film (Scottish Book Trust)

10 Best Ghost Stories (Publisher's Weekly - Includes a Christmas Carol, why didn't we think of that?) 

Best Indie Halloween Books for Grown Ups (Foreword Reviews)

13 Terrifying Modern Horror Comics (Paste Magazine)
