In our final Halloween-themed blog for this year, I’d like to add three more literary works which feature Halloween appropriate characters. Perhaps you’ll get some crazy ideas for your costume!
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien – although the scrapes Bilbo Baggins manages to get himself into are generally humorous, the giant spiders, goblins, and orcs that he has to deal with are not!
- The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – the final scene with the ghost dog from hell emerging from the fog is one of my favorite scary literary moments!
- Some Words with a Mummy by Egar Allan Poe – for those of us who like to go the route of wrapping ourselves in gauze for Halloween!
Have a happy and appropriately scary Halloween! :)
