Happy Halloween, y’all! Also, happy All Hallow’s Read, the gift-giving holiday that Neil Gaiman invented to coincide with Halloween.
Since I can’t very well give all of my readers a physical book today, I want to do the next best thing, and recommend one of my favorite ghost stories, “The Signal-Man,” by Charles Dickens. Yes, that Dickens. Bet you didn’t know he wrote ghost stories, too. I’m not going to take up more of your time by telling you about the story, other than to say that it’s one of those subtle scares that needs to be read in one sitting to get the full effect.
So, what are your favorite scary stories? Leave your recommendations below in the comments.
