Halloween! Books! Reading! Neil Gaiman!

Neil Gaiman, being the industrious author and promoter of reading that he is, has come up with the idea for a new Halloween tradition. He calls it “All Hallow’s Read,” and I have to say, I for one think that it is an awesome idea. You can read more about it here: http://www.allhallowsread.com/ 

To quote Gaiman,

It’s simply that in the week of Hallowe’en, or on the night itself, you give someone a scary book.

Straightforward. And he even has a few lists of suggested reading. In honour of this more-than-worthy up-and-coming tradition, for the remaining days in October, I will be posting reviews of a more Halloween and horror-friendly variety, while still staying well within the bounds of fantasy literature. That means no slasher/thrillers. Just some good/bad/mediocre supernatural books. Time to get posting! Many books to read, many reviews to write, and only two days to do it in.
