Find out what The Realm is reading this Halloween. Which spooky story will you pick up first?


A BEAUTIFUL OLD MANSION... WITH HAUNTING SECRETS.
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

'I’ve already heard so many amazing things about Mexican Gothic, so this book will be perfect to bring some Gothic atmosphere to my Halloween. Mexican Gothic is set in 1950’s Mexico, and has gothic vibes with a storyline of mystery and suspense – and if that isn’t exciting enough this cover is absolutely stunning. Mexican Gothic is all you need to create the perfect Halloween mood.' - Ash

FIRST CAME THE PLAGUE. THEN CAME THE DREAMS.
The Stand by Stephen King

'The Stand is one of Kings greatest books. The classic good versus evil story set in a post-apocalyptic world. Mother Abigail, a 108-year-old Christian woman, draws good people to her while Randall Flagg draws evil to him. The outbreak, division of good and evil, then a battle for survival. Its message of abuse of power is still relevant 40 years after the book was published. The Stand is a must-read, even if horror isn’t your usual genre choice, you won’t be disappointed.' - Sean

THE LONEY ALWAYS GIVES UP ITS SECRETS, IN THE END.
The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley

'I’m revisiting the 2016 British Book Awards Book of the Year, Andrew Michael Hurley’s The Loney. Two brothers on their annual pilgrimage, desperate and alone, unable to resist the wild coast and the mysterious house in the distance. A suburban gothic thriller exploring brotherhood, faith and a locked room with sinister secrets – a superbly eerie Halloween read.' - Sophie

DON'T WANT TO LEAVE? THAT'S GOOD, BECAUSE YOU CAN'T.
Slade House by David Mitchell

'To me, David Mitchell’s dizzyingly beautiful, time-twisting works are the ultimate in magic realism. So a David Mitchell story set around Halloween in an alluring but creepy mansion? That is my peak Spooky Season #mood. In true Mitchell fashion, open a door with no handle or keyhole to follow a story that spans decades. Grab a torch, read this in the dark and be lured into Slade House. - Whitney

IN THIS MODERN HAUNTED HOUSE, THE ONLY WAY OUT IS UP.
Thirteen Stories by Jonathan Sims (Coming November 2020)

'As a fan of both podcasts and horror novels, this Halloween I’ll be reading Thirteen Storeys by Jonathan Sims, writer of The Magnus Archives podcast. A billionaire mysteriously dies at a dinner party and there are unsettling occurrences in the walls of the apartment building… I can’t wait to be spooked by this story!' - Eliza
