For our readers who don't feel like trick-or-treating or dressing up or even a trip to the video store, we say there is no shame in staying home with a good book. In fact, UPM has several titles that will still keep you in spirit of the holiday:
- Haunted Halls: Ghostlore of American College Campuses by Elizabeth Tucker. Tucker takes reader back to school to get acquainted with a wide range of college spirits.
- Shadows and Cypress: Southern Ghost Stories by Alan Brown. A collection of some of Dixie's most frightening ghost tales
- Stories from the Haunted South by Alan Brown. Even more ghost-ridden tales from the South.
And our friends at NYU Press have been blogging about Halloween all week. Check out their week-long series, A Study of Halloween: A Week of Ghoulish Articles at From The Square.
