And well, here's a chance for you! At least, for you New York City folks.
On October 27th, just in time for Halloween, some of the biggest names in horror fiction will be talking about the things that scare them. The Strand Bookstore is hosting EVERYTHING IS TERRIFYING, a special event with a number of awesome people involved in the horror community. Along with our own Grady Hendrix, guests will meet Laird Barron, Ellen Datlow, John Langan, Sarah Langan, and J.T. Petty.
The stunning postcards hail from Staehle's Silhouette Masterpiece Theater, a webcomic that features painstakingly detailed etching carved from beautiful paintings. Hugs & Misses is full of lovelorn ladies, roguish gentlemen, renegade Cupids, and indecent proposals, while Stars & Swipes offers a hilarious vision of classic Americana, with farcical frontiersmen, prattling presidents, and other all-American oddities.

Cut two eyeholes out of a bed sheet, and BOO! You've scared yourself up a classic Halloween icon. But what does that ghost look like when he's shy? Or in love? Or a pirate, a llama, a bond villain, or Russian nesting doll? 100 Ghosts explores every sort of spook in a series of whimsically haunting illustrations.
It's a delightful collection for adults, children, and anyone in need of a friendly fright.
