Harrowing Halloween Horror

We’ve recently added some great new books to our horror collection, just in time for Halloween!  Check them out:

frostbiteFrostbite: A Werewolf Tale by David Wellington — Since vampires are currently everyone’s favorite creature of the night (thanks a lot, Stephenie Meyer), we don’t see many books about werewolves these days. Fortunately, Frostbite fills in the gaps pretty well with its fairly traditional take on lycanthropy.

vampireVampire Archives: The Most Complete Volume of Vampire Tales Ever Published edited by Otto Penzler — This monster (no pun intended) weighs in at 1,034 pages, and includes vampire tales from masters like Arthur Conan Doyle, Ray Bradbury, H.P. Lovecraft, and Clive Barker.

bitemarksBite Marks: A Vampire Testament by Terence Taylor — Believe it or not, Taylor has come up with a fairly unique take on the modern vampire tale. This one involves a young girl who is forced to vampirize her newborn baby; the vampire baby then terrorizes New York City. 

redtreeRed Tree by Caitlin Kiernan — This book quickly caught my attention because its description is quite Lovecraftian: a woman moves to a creepy house in Rhode Island and discovers a weird manuscript written by a parapsychologist obsessed with a huge oak tree.
