5 classically chilling books to read in October

It's the perfect season to read (or re-read) these spine-chillers.

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

After a hair-raising waltz with Poe, turn your attention next to Henry James’ classic 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw. The book terrifies on two levels: Seeing ghosts is scary, but so is having others deny their presence – is everyone around you lying, or are you going insane? If you’ve always loved ghost stories, this psychological thriller is a must-read.
