Good Afternoon Brothers! Fall is such a fantastic time of year. The air is crisp and fresh. Leaves turn a splendid shade of yellow, orange, and red. The wind stirs slowly, yet poignant, almost as if it were about to whisper a secret of something greater, something spiritual. This is the season of Fall, a time of both bewilderment and quiet introspection.

*******************

While keeping with my Fall tradition, I have been reading Bram Stoker's Dracula. For me, this book is a must-read every Fall season. Though there are many other fantastic novels and short stories which align perfectly with the Fall/Halloween season, this book will always be a classic which never grows old.

My question for you is this: What novels or short stories do you take pleasure in reading during the Fall/Halloween season?

Great book!

I know you're talking about the book but here's what we watch every Halloween:
Bram Stoker's Dracula
Sleepy Hollow (w/Depp)
any Vincent Price horror flick

Didn't get around to it this year, but I usually like to spend fall evenings out on the deck with coffee, pipes, and Poe.

Bram Stoker's Dracula and Sleepy Hollow; a few of my favorites! Vincent Price: He will always be the King of the horror in my book! The House on Haunted Hill is a particularly good one for this time of year.

Poe is one of my all-time favorite authors, especially this time of year! Now add fresh air, coffee, and a good pipe....what more could you want?

Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned by Wells Tower. Not really a Halloween book, but brutally honest, perfect prose that examines life at its most vulnerable.

Poe, Alan Moore's "From Hell," Lovecraft or vintage Stephen King is great.
