Stories to Stay Awake

The gift of a good horror story is that it reveals an aspect of the nature of humanity that makes us uncomfortable. Stories intended for juvenile audience can leave such messages so subtly that they remain in hidden crevices of our minds forever. Sarah McCoy, author of The Mapmaker's Children, inspired the first half of this thematic reading list for us. The second half for the more visually inclined plumbs the depths of graphic novel horror fiction. A reading list chock full of scary reads perfect for October.
