Today (October 30) is the day before Halloween, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a ghoulishly fun, spooky and fulfilling day. Halloween has certainly been becoming a bigger and bigger holiday over the past decade or so, and especially in a year where October 31 falls on a weekend, it should be even more fun!

I’m also going to take this opportunity to plug my books more or less shamelessly. It’s fitting, though, because I’m a horror writer (among other things), and should you need a good scare or some zombie-chopping fun, I’ve written a couple of books you might enjoy.

Zombies of Byzantium, probably my most well-known book, involved as an attack of the undead in the 8th century A.D. It’s sort of like Braveheart meets Night of the Living Dead, which you don’t see in a book that often!

Zombie Rebellion involves an outbreak of the living dead on the western Pennsylvania frontier in 1794. And George Washington. Fighting zombies. Yes, George Washington fighting zombies.

Doppelgänger is a spooky Victorian haunted house story with an interesting twist–it involves the ghost of a person who’s still alive! The new movie Crimson Peak is making Gothic horror fashionable right now, so this one is especially timely.

My forthcoming book The Rats of Midnight is coming out December 1. Set in the dot-com boom in Portland, Oregon, it involves a murderous cult that worships the most disgusting god you could imagine. Preorder your copy, and you can have some more spooks for Christmas as well as Halloween.

Have a great Halloween!
