This week's spooky read from HPL

Every Friday in October, we're highlighting a spooky read to help you get into the Halloween spirit.

Do you like your horror to be a little different? To keep you on your toes and and wondering what's just around the corner? Mark Z. Danielewski's HOUSE OF LEAVES, often included on Halloween lists as one of the scariest books ever written, takes the modern horror story and turns it not just upside down but inside out. 

Are you up to the challenge?

The story [focuses] on a young family that moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story -- of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.
