Scary Stories for the Spooky Season

BookBar Fri, 10/13/2017 - 12:57pm

This time of year always revives the same old questions: When’s it gonna snow? What are you gonna be for Halloween? Will anyone remember to vote when presidential candidates aren’t on the ballot? Will Halloween finally fall on Friday the 13th this year? Why has that still never happened? All great questions if you ask me. This year is unique however, in that we can all agree that no scary story or movie comes anywhere near the daily reality we live in. Horror has become an escape–a reminder of a more comfortable time when these stories actually did scare us.
