The Haunting of Hill House
It’s not Halloween without Shirley Jackson. You may know her from her chilling short story “The Lottery,” but until you experience this lush tale of haunted horror, you have not been properly Shirley-ed. This is a gorgeously written ghost story of the highest order.
A group of strangers convene at the stately, long shut-up Hill House. They’ve come to participate in a survey of the supernatural — but as the days tick on, and the nights grow ever-more harrowing, the group gets the strangest sense that they’d all been there before… Don't blame us for the nightmares! - Evelyn Maguire
