"No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality; even larks and katydids are supposed, by some, to dream. Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood so for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, Walls continued upright, bricks met nearby, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone."
The opening to the classic Shirly Jackson novel, with the gorgeous new edition above with design overseen by Guillermo del Toro. What more could you ask for Halloween?
