Top 13 Books for Halloween

from Calef Brown's Hallowilloween
It's time for rhymes and scary tales, and truths to make you pale:

1. First, the cracklety crack of bones in a sack, a boy in terror, running back. On a Windy Night

2. Then a boy in a horse, zapped to beyond by a plasma force. Ghostopolis

3. Now what's that flying in the night, swinging to home before the light? Bats at the Ballgame

4. In comes a boy and a hob, a whisper in the fog. An evil fay, a curse in the bog! The Crowfield Curse

5. Next in line, a wicked rhyme with brains of goat and a spout that floats. Hallowilloween

6. Then comes danger, gross and icky, sometimes clever, sometimes sticky. Danger!

7. Cutting in line, it's Zombie "Z", for "B" he has no empathy. But better be wary, "B" is scary! Alpha Oops! H for Halloween

8. Then a gravedigger rises from paper, haunting Marsh, with a scythe that tapers.  The Light: (Morpheus Road)

9. Next a monster needs a trim -- his hair? a snake? or something more grim? Even Monsters Need Haircuts

10. After which, a huggable lug who tries to scare, then learns to "luv." Big Scary Monster

11. Sillier monsters never seen, fiends to topple Frankenstein. Dr. Frankensketch's Monster Drawing Machine

12. Next a book to draw you near and sing a silly love of fear. If You're a Monster and You Know It

13. Clutch a cross, flash a mirror, better work fast, they're coming nearer!  Vampireology
