Slowly I Turned

CREEES faculty members Tom Garza and Elizabeth Richmond-Garza are among those discussing their favorite literary works of horror and the uncanny in celebration of Halloween in the feature story on the UT main page this week.

Posted: October 28, 2009

Halloween: The word itself evokes images of grinning jack-o-lanterns, costumed trick-or-treaters and otherworldly creatures drifting through the night.

In celebration of this spooky holiday, scholars throughout The University of Texas at Austin reveal their favorite spine-tingling tales of horror. Whether it's apparitions roaming the English countryside, the nightmarish mind of a madman or the mad-capped antics of mischievous ghosts, these literary works are perfect for that one night of the year when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest.

Sleeping with the lights on this week? Don't forget to check under the bed.
