Ghosts, Goblins, and Gods

Time to snuggle up in a blanket with a cup of hot tea--with all the lights on--because these creepy selections will leave you shivering. By Emily Compton-Dzak

  • Ghostly : a collection of ghost stories


    Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler's Wife) was the big draw for me when I saw this title. With authors ranging from Edgar Allen Poe to Neil Gaiman, Niffenegger writes an introduction to each story. Big names aside, these tales of haunted houses, people, and even animals are sure give you the creeps.
