Give Everyone Scary Books for Halloween, Neil Gaiman Said So

And So It Begins

I was the only person I knew who actually looked forward to trick or treating at the giant house of the lady who had a job with Scholastic and gave out books for Halloween, even if I already had that month’s Animorphs book and had to pick something else, and so I am all for Neil Gaiman‘s proposed tradition of All Hallows Read. Gaiman suggests that we would all benefit from a holiday that was specifically about giving books to your loved ones, and why not make it Halloween, to just add to all the scary sugar-fueled goodness.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
