Let me take a break, just for this post, from my usual focus on education and technology. Today is the first of October, and I’d like to do something different in honor of this Halloween-tailed month.
So here’s my plan for the rest of October:
- to read no fiction but scary stories
- to see as many unseen-by-me horror movies as possible
- to play scary computer games
I should have good access to most materials, even from my remote home in Vermont, thanks to Netflix (DVD and streaming), Amazon (streaming video, Kindle books), a friendly public library, friends, RSS (for podcasts), and the internet in general. Gaming platforms include PC, Android, and Xbox.
Are there horror novels from the past 15 or so years that stood out for you? Have you found fine creepiness on Netflix, or even in the theater? Gamers, anything made you turn on all the lights? I’ll be traveling to Indianapolis and upstate New York; any recommendations for horror from those locales?
