The Washington Post ran a symposium on scary stories yesterday. Lots of good suggestions, including several I need to check out myself. Shirley Jackson, who is the subject of my WSJ piece today, receives a few nice mentions. Also, there’s a dumb and off-topic swipe at Charles Krauthammer, by Lemony Snicket, who is the author of the Unfortunate Events series of books for kids. Apparently he hates conservatives.
