The Low-Rent House of Horror (part two)

Last time around, we freaked you out with scary (and just plain disturbing) books that our LRL staff trudged up during their nightly break-ins at abandoned bookstores in order to provide for our barren shelves. This week, we continue sharing our spoils with you, the LRL readers:


The Low-Rent House of Horror (part one)

It’s Halloween season at The Low-Rent Library. If you’re like me, you’ll find yourself too old to go trick-or-treating, but old enough to watch horror films and scare the other kids who are still young enough to trick-or-treat.

You’re also old enough to read some horror books. Now, normal libraries have such scary classics as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, or anything by Edgar Allan Poe (including his sad life story). However, this is the Low-Rent Library. Most of the books donated to us are so bad, not even the Dollar Store will sell them.

Since the LRL netted a buttload of scary books this year (thanks to the recession putting most stores out of business and our crack team of skilled sneak thieves breaking into the abandoned stores late at night), this catalog post will be split into two parts.

This is part one:

Now, if the Goosebumps parodies look familiar, it’s because they were once part of my Candy’s Blog two-parter where I retitled some books in R.L. Stine’s popular series. Since I’ve moved all my Low-Rent Library entries here, I’ll be reposting the rest of them in part two of this blog entry and add some new PhotoShopped titles.
