One of my favorite October Books

Something Wicked This Way Comes. Even the title gives the chills. Who knows, I may have to read Macbeth someday. But give me Ray Bradbury for the true flavor of an autumn night in the Midwest, especially as seen through the eyes of children. Compared to today's gooey horror novels the scares may be tame, but they mean something, real emotions are at work here. Best scary carnival story ever. If you want to just bathe yourself in October before the Thanksgiving/Winter Holidays onslaught begins, sit down with this one on some dark and windy night. Nothing like a little window rattling to go with a juicy book that captures the mystique of October.
