When I was a kid I loved scary stories. I was addicted to Are You Afraid of the Dark, Goosebumps, Unsolved Mysteries, and Haunted Lives. My bookshelf was full of R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, and any random horror author I could get my hands on. But now that I’m an adult, I don’t read as much horror. And, honestly, I don’t know why.
So if you’re like me and looking for more scary books to read, here’s a list of some that I’ve found over the past few years.
It’s been a year already, somehow, and Hal-Con is back to take the science-fiction world by storm October 26th – 28th at the Halifax World Trade Convention Center!
Engen Books authors will be there for their third year in a row, bringing new novels and merchandise for fans and newcomers to enjoy!
Authors on site include Matthew LeDrew (Black Womb, Gang War) and Ellen Curtis (Compendium, The Tourniquet Reprisal). Also in attendance: Jay Paulin (Gristle while you Work), who will be doubling his efforts as both Engen authors and Ink’d Well Comics creator!
Engen will be hosting and participating in several writing panels throughout the convention, so be sure and make it down to as many as you can if you’re interested in Engen or in writing in general! Panels include:

Engen also debuts, for the first time ever, The Tourniquet Reprisal: the sequel to 2010’s smash-hit Infinity. Infinity was released at the first Hal-Con and developed a strong fan-base there, who have been eagerly awaiting the sequel for two years.
Also being released in the new, international edition of Black Womb, revised and expanded throughout, the first of the original five Black womb books to be reinvented as such.
New-to-Halifax includes light|dark, an anthology featuring the work of two Halifax natives; Gang War, the ninth book in the much-beloved Black womb series; and The Man with the Hole in his Head, the first book from the newest Engen-author Kevin Woolridge.
