What to read on Halloween

Jack o' LanternsSome people have Halloween plans, but others might prefer staying home and reading some creepy stories. If you’re one of those people, you’ve come to the right place. (And if you aren’t one of those people, but know someone who is, point them over here!) We’re taking a quick jaunt in our time machine to revisit some stories we’ve published on Mad Scientist Journal that are creepy or Halloween themed!

Within the Pulse of Darkness” by Lucas Leery (downright spooky!)

A Distant Honk” by Holly Schofield (creepy and atmospheric)

After Fear Becomes My Friend” by Richard Zwicker (charming and not scary story staring traditionally scary monsters) (full story available in Autumn 2015 MSJ)

The House Wins” by Rich Young (dark story that might make you afraid to be home alone) (full story available in Autumn 2015 MSJ)

In the Defense of Mummies” by J. M. Perkins (charming and not scary story about the usefulness of mummies) (full story available in Winter 2015 MSJ)

The Nothing in the Wall” by Christopher Lynch (dark story of genius and madness) (full story available in Autumn 2014 MSJ)

As an added bonus feature, check out the No Sleep Podcast, which includes a story from MSJ alum Alyssa N. Vaughn called “Fun Facts”! Her story is included with other spooky tales on this podcast episode.
