It’s October and you know what that means!!! HALLOWEEN!!!!!
I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of Halloween. The costumes, the candy, the pranks, the movies, I love all of it. No other holiday captures our imagination and creativity like Halloween. No other holiday brings out the creepy, crawly, whimsical, and wonderful quite like Halloween either. That’s why, on every Tuesday and Thursday in October, my friends over at Truth About Books and I will be bringing you tales, histories, and warnings about what sort of creatures to look out for this month. After all, if you’re going to catch a glimpse of a pixie, a vampire, a werewolf, or some sort of other odd creature, it might be nice to know a bit beyond what the movies have taught you in case you want to strike up a conversation, or if you have to run for your life.
Stay tuned as we explore creatures both frightful and kind, malevolent and benign, whimsical and solemn all this month!
