The two weeks following Halloween probably feel very similar to each of us. It’s almost a time of mourning. Our favorite holiday has passed, and that means news slows, seasonal updates and features take a hit. It means the spotlight veers from iconic literary figures like Norman Partridge and Paul Melniczek, who have a special place in their hearts for Halloween, to a more diverse crowd who may not be so addicted to October 31st.
That’s not a terrible thing, but those days following All Hallows Eve certainly sting for those who do cherish Halloween.
So we wanted to reach out to you, readers and writers and ask for your help. Even if you can’t point us in the direction of an author who makes sure to pump out an annual Halloween offering, maybe you can at least point us in the direction of some of the very best Halloween-themed novels ever written.
The question is simple: What is your favorite Halloween novel(s)? We really, honestly want to hear your votes, as a lot of us will be looking to cling to this holiday for weeks to come.
Don’t be bashful, drop your response in our comments section, please!
