I’ve never been a fan of scary stuff . . . don’t like horror movies and dark tales. I will only read them if they are written by a friend. Like Jere Hoar’s short story collection, Body Parts, or his novel, The Hit.
So I looked for some alternative Halloween activities. First I found this great site, “All Hallows Read.” Kind of an expensive idea, to give kids books instead of candy for Halloween, but an interesting one, nonetheless. Check out author Neil Gaiman’s video explaining how the idea came to be. (I love the zombies.) Give someone a scary book and start a new tradition.
Next I scrounged around for some “noir lite” cartoons for writers and readers on Halloween Day. Enjoy!
