Description: Something Wicked This Way Comes


One of Ray Bradbury’s best-known and most popular novels, Something Wicked This Way Comes, now featuring a new introduction and material about its longstanding influence on culture and genre.

For those who still dream and remember, for those yet to experience the hypnotic power of its dark poetry, step inside. The show is about to begin. Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. A calliope’s shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained. Two boys will discover the secret of its smoke, mazes, and mirrors; two friends who will soon know all too well the heavy cost of wishes…and the stuff of nightmares.

Few novels have endured in the heart and memory as has Ray Bradbury’s unparalleled literary masterpiece Something Wicked This Way Comes. Scary and suspenseful, it is a timeless classic in the American canon.

Description: The Haunting of Hill House


The greatest haunted house story ever written and the inspiration for a 10-part Netflix series directed by Mike Flanagan and starring Michiel Huisman, Carla Gugino, and Timothy Hutton.

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who
arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult
scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted
assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with
poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems
destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill
House is gathering its powers--and soon it will choose one of them to make its
own.
