As every Halloween approaches, literary thoughts turn to Edgar Allen Poe. Yes, the guy could write a thrilling and creepy tale —no surprise, as he himself was pretty creepy. Lists of spooky books put out each late October are pretty male-dominated, like this one that lists only two books by women out of ten. There are lots of others like it.
What’s annoying is that the standard lists of thrillers often overlook stories by women writers. The sampling of haunting classics by women authors following will send shivers up the spine and at the same time, give your taste for great language a thrill.
