We're coming up on another Halloween soon. What are you reading to get into the mood? What are your favorite creepy books (fiction or nonfiction!)?
For some good shivers, I like Harlan Ellison and Orson Scott Card's short stories, and Mira Grant's trilogy of zombie novels.
My YA picks include anything by William Sleator and Robert Cormier, and I still reread them regularly. Sleator's "The Beasties" is actually one of the few books that's ever creeped me out so badly I wish I hadn't read it. I'm not actually sure why it hit me so hard. It's very... visceral, I guess.
For nonfiction that will make your skin crawl, I recommend "The Plutonium Files" by Eileen Welsome, and I just heard good things about "Dispensing with the Truth" by Alicia Munro (anyone read it?). Nothing like the history of ethics violations in science and medicine to keep you up all night...
