“Chris Picks” October: Hauntings

Here are this month’s five great recommendations from staff member Christopher Jennings Penders! Click on a title to place a hold. To find previous Chris Picks just click on the “what to read” link at the bottom of this page or type “Chris Picks” into the search bar on our home page.

To celebrate October being Halloween month, I’ve chosen five of my favorite fright writers. Ghosts, vampires, aliens, and ghouls abound in this latest selection of books. Open the pages of these books with caution (LOL).

Henry James
Turn of the Screw

Shirley Jackson
The Haunting of Hill House

Tanya Huff
Blood Price
Blood Trail
Blood Lines

Stephen King
Salem’s Lot
The Shining
From a Buick 8
Needful Things

Ray Bradbury
Something Wicked This Way Comes
From the Dust Returned
Dandelion Wine
The Martian Chronicles

Clive Barker
A slight warning about Clive Barker’s Weaveworld: the book is graphic in some of the language Mr. Barker Uses. However, Weaveworld is one of the books I have read multiple times. I love the story that much. Sacrament is the book Mr. Barker HAD to write. If you decide to read it, you will understand why.
The Thief of Always
