October 1book140 Nominations Begin: Scary Books

By Jeff Howe

As longtime 1book140 readers already know, we've got more than a few fans of horror fiction among us. I always said we'd get around to picking a representative of this time-honored (Poe, anyone?) genre. Halloween offers us our best opportunity yet. (If you're new to our book club, and find all this terribly confusing, please go here for a quick primer.)

So give us your creepy, your bone-chilling, your most wonderfully wretched nominations from now through Friday, 5 pm EST. Name the title and author in the comments below. We'll choose someone to choose the shortlist this weekend (perhaps a certain celebrity author would be interested), then we'll vote on a finalist early next week. Happy reading, bookies.
