3 Horror Novels By Black Authors To Read This Halloween

3 Horror Novels By Black Authors To Read This Halloween

Halloween is here! We hope you spent your weekend binge watching spooky flicks (if not, check our list for some ideas). While most of us will be spending the evening out trick or treating, reading horror stories is a way to make your Halloween night feel complete.  So to get you ready for All Hallow’s Eve, below are three horror books written by black women you’ll want to really sink your teeth into.

  1. How To Recognize A demon Has Become Your Friend by Linda D. Addison

Addison is a horror, sci-fi, and fantasy author and poet. She is the first black woman to ever be the recipient of the Bram Stoker Award which she won for the third time in 2012 for her short fiction/ poetry collection “How to Recognize A Demon Has Become Your Friend”. This collection deals with demons found in people you would expect and in places you wouldn’t.

  1. Let’s Play White By Chesya Burke

Burke, whose work has been compared to Toni Morrison, is known for her dark fantasy and horror tales. “Let’s play White” centers on African American and African legends and surround them with horror elements. The collection looks at whiteness, its meaning, and probes questions to challenge ideas of race & privilege to figure out what it means to be human.

  1. Moonshine by Alaya Dawn Johnson

Johnson is the speculative fiction author of several works that does cross a variety of genres like historical fiction, horror, and fantasy. Fans of Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight series would want to read this vampire historical fiction tale Moonshine. Zephyr Hollis, a daughter of a demon hunter and vampire night school teacher, is asked by a handsome Amir to take on vampire mob boss. The story is a tongue in cheek on supernatural elements with some romance in the mix.

Happy Halloween!
