This Crumbling Pageant by Patricia Burroughs

Scary Hallowe'en Meme

From margaritaabate, who got it from ratherbesailing (I'm crap at html, so I'm just not going to bother):

Friday: Scariest Book I've Ever Read:

It's actually not a book but a short story: George RR Martin's Sandkings. Yes, the GRRM of Game of Thrones fame, which I have not started reading because I want the series completed first.

The premise: a pet store sells exotic pets, and the protagonist buys some. He's told he can condition them (like Pavlov). And things start to go wrong ...

There are other categories (see list below) that I won't be posting about because they are not applicable to me.

Saturday- Scariest/Creepiest Place That You Have Either Been or Don't Want to Go
Sunday- Creepiest/Scariest Halloween/Samhain Songs
Monday- Scariest Movie You've Ever Seen

(no subject)
