Here are two quick recommendations of works I recently finished that are perfect for the season.
* Book rec:
A Taste for Monsters by Matthew J. Kirby (2016), historical/mystery/horror/fantasy YA. What a beautiful, haunting story! My review is here.
* Netflix streaming rec:
Glitch. This is the Australian version of France's take on "the dead are back," The Returned (which I also love), but a unique enough spin to make this its own separate animal. The first season has six episodes (binge-able!) and the second season is in production now. Great writing. Intriguing and poignant.

On to the countdown...

While we were at Worldcon in August, my fantastic mother picked up for me a beautiful picture book, saying that it "looked like me" (which I take as a huge compliment). It's a gorgeous, Gothic story, both spooky and heartwarming, and I can't recommend it enough: The Lady ParaNorma by Vincent Marcone.



As it turns out, the picture book is based on an equally gorgeous short film. I present to you The Lady ParaNorma.
