Summary

'Must-Read Halloween Books' presents an amalgam of haunting narratives that delve into the supernatural, the mysterious, and the macabre. This anthology boasts a diverse array of literary styles, from the psychological terror of Henry James to the Gothic horrors of Bram Stoker, and the unsettling folkloric tales of Algernon Blackwood. Encapsulating the spirit of Halloween, the collection spans the spectral fictions of the 18th century to the eerie tales of the early 20th century, providing a comprehensive look at the evolution of horror and ghost literature, and including seminal pieces that have shaped the genre. The authors represented in this collection are titans of English literature and pioneers of the horror and mystery genres. Figures such as Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft, whose works have defined and refined the contours of horror, contribute to the anthology's depth. The inclusion of less overtly horrifying, yet equally perturbing stories by Mark Twain and Thomas Hardy, adds layers of psychological intrigue and cultural commentary, reflecting the complex societal anxieties of their times. 'Must-Read Halloween Books' is an essential compendium for aficionados and new readers alike, offering a unique panorama of the most chilling literature. Each story is a gateway into the unexplored corridors of human fear and fascination with the supernatural. This collection not only entertains but also provides a profound understanding of the historical and cultural contexts in which these stories were written, making it a valuable resource for both literary scholars and casual readers interested in the roots and evolution of the horror genre.

    Scorch marks blacken the wireframe dungeon, and the smell of burnt meat hangs in the air. Iarumas’s party stumbles upon a corpse, more charcoal than flesh, and Raraja insists on dragging it out. Murmur—Chant—Pray—Invoke. A large-framed girl named Berkanan gulps the fresh air of her second chance at life. Her confidence is low and her skills as a fledgling mage are inadequate, but despite all that, she has a serious goal—kill the red dragon that burned her party alive. This dragon, an interloper from the lower levels of the dungeon, has become so notorious that even the most seasoned parties refuse to engage. Even so, Garbage and Raraja agree to aid Berkanan, and Iarumas lends his support. The chances of failure are high, but in the dungeon, immolation is not a permanent end...as long as someone is willing to pay. Can Iarumas’s party douse the flames of the dragon, or will they all succumb to a menacing red death?
