This October, our Staff Picks of the Week will all be about spooktacular horror.   We have 4 new Spooky Staff Pick Bookmarks for you, available at the Circulation desk all month long to keep you in the Halloween spirit.

This week’s staff pick is Hell House by Richard Mattheson.  Our staffer said it is one of, if not the best haunted house novels of all time.

You could also try one of the many anthologies edited by Ellen Datlow… her most recent, Fearful Symmetries: an anthology of horror, has just arrived at the Library so it’s perfect timing all around!

You can check out the other Ellen Datlow anthologies we have at the library here.

Tonight there will be a Lunar Eclipse that will result in a Blood Moon. NASA’s website has some great information about it, and links to other webpages about the eclipse. EarthSky.org also provides a decent short FAQ about the eclipse.

This October, our Staff Picks of the Week will all about spooktacular horror.   We have 4 new Spooky Staff Pick Bookmarks for you, available at the Circulation desk all month long to keep you in the Halloween spirit.

To kick off, our staffer recommends John Dies at the End by David Wong and it’s sequel This Book is Full of Spiders.  These are an extremely bizarre, but extremely excellent, horror/comedy fusion.   We think you should check out a copy today.
