Since its inception in 2011, acclaimed author Neil Gaiman's All Hallow's Read has been a movement aimed at getting people to give each other scary books as a present for Halloween. This isn't, as the author states in his original promotional video, something to replace parties, trick-or-treating, or all the other daft fun associated with the day, but just a little something extra to promote not only reading, but horror as a genre of fiction.
It's a simple but noble idea and one that we at Intravenous Magazine give our backing to. If it is something that you would be introducing to your annual Halloween festivities, here's a few lists of recommended books to get you started. This is by no means an exhaustive or definitive list, just some varied suggestions for anyone who likes a good book.
