The Literary Horror Book Club will focus on the darker side of literature, from gothic classics to current award winners. We like dark fantasy, supernatural and existential horror, or anything that's both well-written and blood-chilling. Moderated by Quail Ridge staffer and life-long horror enthusiast, Jon Carroll Thomas (look for the guy to the left). The club meets the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm.
August 9 - You Should Have Left by Daniel Kehlmann
September 13 - We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson
October 11 - Hell House by Richard Matheson
From the internationally best-selling author of Measuring the World and F, an eerie and supernatural tale of a writer's emotional collapse
"It is fitting that I'm beginning a new notebook up here. New surroundings and new ideas, a new beginning. Fresh air."
Shirley Jackson's beloved gothic tale of a peculiar girl named Merricat and her family's dark secret
"Hell House is the scariest haunted house novel ever written. It looms over the rest the way the mountains loom over the foothills." -- Stephen King
