Patton Oswalt suggests a scary story for every day of October
I know, I know, it's already near the end of October, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't check out this amazing list of horror stories suggested by comedian, actor and nerd Patton Oswalt. The man clearly loves to read and just looking over his MySpace posts I had to add about twenty new names to the list inside my brain of writers I need to check out. While I love Oswalt's comedy, it's actually kind of refreshing how seriously he seems to be taking this task, giving his own critique of each of the stories not as a wise ass comedian, but as a book lover trying to convince someone these tales are worth checking out. I hate to admit it, but the only two stories he's mentioned so far that I've actually read are "The Jaunt" by Stephen King and "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs. I really need to get a hold of some of those books.
