Am I walking toward something I should be running away from?
~ Shirley Jackson
In honor of Halloween, I'm sharing spooky book covers for Shirley Jackson's works. Shirley Jackson wrote "The Lottery," which is one of the most powerful short stories around. I would guess that "The Lottery" might have inspired The Hunger Games, but I don't know. So, which covers are your favorites? Which one creeps you out the most?
