If, like me, you’re mourning the passing of October, here are some spooky links to keep the Halloween spirit alive:
Including not one but two iterations of “The Licked Hand“!
Featuring Sheila Yeti and Louise Eldritch, among others.
Stories selected from Electric Literature‘s Recommended Reading, including work from Karen Russell and Mary Gaitskill
Among them, one of my favorites, Rachmaninoff’s “Isle of the Dead”
Comments like this are part of the reason why Kelly Link is one of my favorite writers: “I’m no longer watching television in which middle-aged men figure out how to be men. I’d rather watch shows about teenaged girls figuring out what it means to be a monster.”
Including the aforementioned Kelly Link and a childhood favorite of mine, Louis Sachar’s Sideways Tales from Wayside School.
Mary Shelley’s hand-written drafts of Frankenstein are available online in one place for the first time at the Shelley-Godwin Archive.
