Halloween is tomorrow. Some people, mostly children and the parents that steal their candy, count this among their favorite holidays. But not everyone goes all in for candy and costumes.
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.
