Happy Halloween! Check out the Haunted Bookshop at the Raconteur tonight!
Quoth the Raconteur: "Come see Kafka's Gregor Samsa turn into a clacking black bug as Dr. Moreau's hybrid manimals scrabble and yowl; watch Lovecraft's ghouls eat parts of their own body as the tragic Prince of Denmark addresses the exhumed skull of his deceased court jester and Victor Hugo's hideous Gwynplaine cackles maniacally; participate in the chilling Swiss Alps séance from Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain as a very dead Poe recites The Raven and Mary Shelley's monster is jolted into consciousness.Your guide for the night is Arthur Conan Doyle's Scotland Yard dick, Inspector Lestrade, recently trampled by a rampant carriage. Gallery of Horrors! Cabinet of Curiosities! Chilling Live Music by the Phantom Pianist. Admission: $5 @ the door. Tours are roughly 15 min long. Ages 8 & up."
