  • On Halloween, we get excited for—what else?—all the horror stories. In order to save everyone time, we imagined two-sentence short stories written by our favorite fictional characters. But be warned, some of these are downright terrifying...for these characters' standards.

  • Stephen King once said, in the original foreword to Night Shift, that “the great appeal of horror fiction…is that it serves as a rehearsal for our own deaths.” With Halloween around the corner, scary stories are everywhere – on TV, on the bookshelves at your local indie, under your bed – but why do we get so excited about stories that give us goosebumps that we turn into something resembling brain-hungry zombies?

  • On October 19, people will be evaluating their lives for Evaluate Your Life Day. People will break up with unhealthy partners, take up new exercise routines, and go back to school to pursue their dream jobs. We have compiled a list of some characters who should evaluate their lives, and we have provided a few suggestions to help them get back on track.

  • It's that time of year again—the time to watch Interview with the Vampire. It makes us wonder what would happen if vampires were interviewed by journalists for teen magazines. We created our own interviews with our favorite vampires. Just be sure to read them in the sunlight.

  • If you’re one of the lucky few who has off today, then you probably know it’s Columbus Day. Otherwise, you might not realize it’s a holiday until you see the commercials for Columbus Day Weekend Sales. (Thank you, Macy’s.)

    Despite the sea of controversy surrounding Columbus, use this opportunity to read some stellar books. Columbus-inspired locations are big in fiction, so check out these six books, comics, and TV shows set in spots named after the explorer who "discovered" America.

  • We’ve got trains on the brain today at Quirk Books. It’s no secret that commuter travel plays a major role in the plot of The Girl on the Train, so we started thinking. Cars and planes are well and good, but where would storytelling be without our trusty locomotives? To celebrate the film’s release, here’s a look at our favorite train rides in books and pop culture.
