Happy Halloween, lovers of 1970s horror fiction! And the rest of you too, we guess. This morning, The Millions pointed us to this excellent Tumblr of vintage horror paperback covers curated by Too Much Horror Fiction, a blog dedicated to collecting, reviewing and celebrating the same. Some of these covers are eerie, some are bizarre, and some are flat-out horrifying, but they’re all totally weird and amazing — and they all make us want to read them on this spookiest of nights. Click through to see some of our favorites from the Too Much Horror Fiction archives, and then be sure to check out the website for more!
