I’ve always loved the spooky, ghost-story side of Halloween. Well, that and the chocolate. So this year, while I’m waiting for trick-or-treaters (and not eating their candy), I’ll curl up with Corinne May Botz’s Haunted Houses. Botz spent ten years hunting down ghost stories across America, and her book is filled with eerie photographs of more than eighty haunted locales. Even if you’re not a believer, the accompanying first-person supernatural accounts will send shivers down your spine. Go ahead, read the stories of those who lived through the creaking floors, apparitions, and cries in the night. But be warned: You might just jump out of your skin when that first trick-or-treater rings your doorbell. Get into the Halloween spirit with a few of my favorite stories.
