It's October, a fine time to learn some spooky stories to tell while you're gathered around a campfire.

I like The Moonlit Road for my spooky stories.

I was disappointed to see that the reissue of Schwartz's Scary Stories dropped Stephen Gammell's famous illustrations in favor of art from Brett Helquist. Helquist is fine, of course, and his clean compositions probably scale down better to mass market paperback size, but he can't hold a dripping, ichorous nightmare candle to Gammell. The new edition suffers for it.
