Today begins Banned Book Week. You might want to check out the American Library Association’s 13 Scary Banned Books to Read for Halloween.
In other calendar-related news, the deadline for the Halloween 2022 issue of tiny frights is September 30th, less than 2 weeks away! If you have little scary poems or microfictions or spooky works of visual art, now is the time to send them! (Please read our submission guidelines first.)
Horror reads since the last update:
- Beneath the Rising by Premee Mohamed, a combination coming-of-age novel and cosmic horror
- The Hollow Places by T. Kingfisher, weird horror with humor and tenderness
- My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones, an original and thrilling take on the final girl trope
Probably at least one of these will be reviewed in the upcoming issue.
