Halloween: Stories of the Season

David Kubicek, one of my editors from back in the day, lists a few good horror stories, including one by a certain fellow who hangs his hat in Halifax! 🙂

moaning-rocksIt is almost an impossible task to make a list of good horror stories because there are legions of them, and there are many authors who aren’t on this list and probably should be. But in the interests of keeping the list manageable, I will only note a few of my favorites. The stories are listed in approximately the order in which they were published, ranging from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in 1820 to “Sun Tea” in 1989.

“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”by Washington Irving 

This is a well-crafted story by one of the first master’s of the American short story. With his richly-detailed descriptions of the settings, the people, and the food, Irving transports the reader into his tale.

 “The Tell-tale Heart”by Edgar Allan Poe
