Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
It’s the time of year when every neighborhood block gets decked out with black cats and pumpkins, annual cemetery tours pop up everywhere and New Yorkers start assembling their costume ideas. That’s right, it’s almost Halloween! Which means it’s also the season ripe with grisly new tales of the strange, the mystifying and the downright spooky. To indulge your desire for terror, we’ve rounded up some new, chilling novels—like “Goosebumps” books all grown up. Read them under the covers or with the lights on: Either way, you won’t be able to escape the depths of dread they spawn.
