    Haha I was looking at this the other night. Most clips of Mark E. Smith tend to be scary.

    If you want to read a new spooky story try Dark Matter by Michelle Paver.

    I don’t think scary stories are really my thing, although I like a bit of Edgar Allen Poe. But I am excited by the reference to Michelle Paver. I (and my children!) love her kids’ books, but I never tried an adult one. Shall definitely give it a go.

    I enjoyed The Small Hand but nothing has since matched The Woman in Black 😦 I also read some M R James ghost stories for the first time this month – great suspense but I suspect they would be better read aloud. I’m just glad Halloween is over and I can take down the homemade decorations, forget about thinking up costumes for another year and now think about Christmas!! Help 😉
