A few literary goodies for Halloween:

A SPOOKY NEW TALE FROM STEVEN KING

Granta Magazine’s newest issue is out, and the theme is Horror. The print issue features a story by Steven King, along with other terrifically spooky fiction and non-fiction pieces. Also check out the online edition for bonus material.

 

 

 

ZOMBIES!

Colson Whitehead’s new novel, Zone One, is not just another zombie story. It’s a smart, chilling page-turner about the living dead “survivors” of a worldwide pandemic and their struggles with PASD, or Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder.

 

 

 

WITCHES

In bookstores tomorrow: the final installment in Gregory McGuire’s The Wicked Years series–Out of Oz. If you like the musical “Wicked,” which was based on the first book in the series, you’ll love these books.

 

 

 

A GRAVEYARD GARDEN TOUR OF DEADLY PLANTS

Author Amy Stewart gives a garden tour of wicked and deadly plants. Check out her book Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities published by our friends at Algonquin Books.
