Also, happy Halloween. To celebrate, as is only right, I want to give you some scary stories.
Archive.org has a nice, nearly-complete collection of H. P. Lovecraft’s stories on audio, available to download for free, right now. (Okay, okay, I know, listening to an audiobook isn’t actually reading in the strictest sense, but there are lots of folks who talk bout “reading” an audiobook, when they mean that they’ve listened to the book, and this way you can get your scare on during your commute, even if you drive, walk, or bike to work or school.)
Second, I’d like to plug Space Eldritch II: the Haunted Stars, which you can now get as an ebook (and, if it’s anything like the first volume, will eventually be available in paper as well). I absolutely loved the original–it had fantastic atmosphere and a great collection of authors–and this one looks to have more of the same (I haven’t yet dived in to my copy). Space Eldritch II is available on Amazon and Smashwords.
Finally, here’s my pumpkin version of Lovecraft because, you know, Halloween.
