The Best of Roald Dahl, Roald Dahl
Though known for whimsical children’s stories like Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, and James & The Giant Peach, author Roald Dahl harbored a (lesser known) talent for grotesque and exceedingly wicked short stories for adults. This collection of 25 stories offers you the cream of Dahl’s slightly creepy, always unsettling, crop. Enjoy, if you dare.

The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman
Halloween is an excellent time of year to get acquainted with author Neil Gaiman (Stardust). Gaiman’s newest, a ghoulish tribute to The Jungle Book, is perfect Halloween reading for young and old, and a tantalizing introduction to Gaiman for those who have yet to realize his coolness.
