Halloween! A horror writer's favorite holiday. Maybe you're thinking about the record of scary sound effects your dad used to play on the stereo before suiting up in his dashed-together mummy outfit and filling the crab-boiling pot with Hershey's Kisses and candy corn. Maybe you're remembering making out with your alien-green girlfriend after a marathon of mini-golf and Ed Wood movies. Maybe seeing autumn leaves feels like coming home to a country you had been exiled from. If so, you might actually be me. Creepy! If so, you've already read the delightfully eerie stories I propose here. No worries. I know you. You'll read them again.
Christopher Buehlman is the author of the new book "The Necromancer's House."
