Time for a ghost story and costume advice...?

A ghost got stuck on this big mason jar! Must have been the cob webs.
Only days before Halloween and I find myself hankering for a good ghost story. So, if you find yourself with the same need here are a few options to consider.

There are two new anthologies out, The Big Book of Ghost Stories (Otto P, ed.) and The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories (Ann & Jeff VanderMeer, eds.) Click here for a review. Or you can read what is on offer at Tor books during their Ghost WeekBut maybe you're the more practical type and wish to learn how to survive a vengeful ghost attack. Well then, check out Yurei Attack: The Japanese ghost survival guide by Hiroko Yoda.

AND, this just in from a friend of mine, if you are looking for costume ideas. If some of you 'ladies' out there are tired of / don't want to be a 'sexy' nurse, a 'sexy' waitress, a 'sexy' construction worker (I've always maintained that at Halloween it doesn't matter what you go as but it should at least be a 'dead' version) then check this out

(Don't even ask how the Thriller Challenge is going.)
