A season of the witch

A season with the witch : the magic and mayhem of Halloween in Salem, Massachusetts
by J.W. Ocker.

From the book description

Edgar Award-winning travel writer explores America’s capital of creepy – Salem, Massachusetts

A single event in its 400 years of history―the Salem Witch Trials of 1692―forever changed the city’s character and reputation in America. Salem thrives as a haven of the bizarre and a modern outpost for the weird. But Salem is a seasonal town―and its season happens to be Halloween. Every October, this small city of 40,000 swells to close to half a million as witches, goblins, ghouls, and ghosts (and their admirers) descend on Essex Street. 

Experience the thrills of Halloween through the eyes of a curious and adventurous outsider in the city that has defined this day for generations. 

Devil's call

Devil’s call
by J. Danielle Dorn

On a dark night in the summer of 1859, three men enter the home of Dr. Matthew Callahan and shoot him dead in front of his pregnant wife. Unbeknownst to them, Li Lian, his wife, hails from a long line of women gifted in ways that scare most folks—the witches of the MacPherson clan—and her need for vengeance is as vast and unforgiving as the Great Plains themselves.

Devil’s Call traces Li Lian’s quest, from the Nebraska Territory, to Louisiana, to the frozen Badlands, to bring to justice the monster responsible for shooting her husband in the back. This long-rifled witch will stop at nothing​—​and risk everything​—​in her showdown with evil.

Night of the mannequins

Night of the mannequins
by Stephen Graham Jones

We thought we’d play a fun prank on her, and now most of us are dead.

One last laugh for the summer as it winds down. One last prank just to scare a friend. Bringing a mannequin into a theater is just some harmless fun, right? Until it wakes up. Until it starts killing.

Luckily, Sawyer has a plan. He’ll be a hero. He’ll save everyone to the best of his ability. He’ll do whatever he needs to so he can save the day. That’s the thing about heroes—sometimes you have to become a monster first.
