Teen Halloween By Hilary Williamson October, 2003'By the pricking of my thumbs, / Something wicked this way comes.' (William Shakespeare, Macbeth)
And it makes great reading, whether in Shakespeare's Macbeth or in modern tales by authors like Neil Gaiman and J. K. Rowling. I scoured our Shelves for the latest in fantastic, spooky stories, suitable for teen Halloween reading. Here are thirteen of the best of 2003:
Abhorsen by Garth Nix A fight against evil in lands adjoining old magic and modern technology.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman Coraline and a black cat in a true fairy tale that hovers on the edge of horror.
