Get scared by Schlow!

Are you looking for a frightening book to read this Halloween? Petrify yourself right away by downloading a scary book from our ebook collection. Type "horror" into the search box.

I asked Schlow's staff for some of their favorite terrifying tales.
They recommended:

The Other by Thomas Tryon. A classic creepy tale of twin boys. Full of suspense and a shocking twist. It will stay with you long after you've read it.

It by Stephen King. (Available as an ebook.) The clown in the storm drain is the stuff that nightmares are made of!

The Blackstone Chronicles by John Saul. When an abandoned asylum is set to be demolished, the residents of the town start receiving mysterious gifts that bring about EVIL to the recipients.

For a truly haunting experience try Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box. An aging rocker buys a dead man's suit. It turns out that the suit includes a ghost who plots revenge on him.

If you want to find out about the ghosts that are in your own backyard, try local author Jeffrey Frazier's The Black Ghost of Scotia or others of his Pennsylvania Fireside Tales.
I recommend Haunted by Joyce Carol Oates. Our late book reviewer volunteer, Sylvia Hopkins, wrote about it, "The 16 previously published stories herein range from the simply puzzling to the totally disgusting, and arranged in that sequence, lulling the reader into a slowly escalating state of horror. For those who have never dined with the Queen of Goth, be warned. Halfway through may be enough for you."

Happy Halloween!
