Halloween is a beloved holiday with many long-standing traditions. However, many people find themselves repeating the same activities each year: trick-or-treating, visiting haunted houses, dressing up, and watching scary movies. One tradition that isn’t common this time of the year is reading. This October The Wild Detectives will give people a new, spooky spin on their favorite stories for them to read.
How? We asked an A.I. to revisit iconic books like The Wizard of Oz, Romeo & Juliet, and The Great Gatsby and rewrite them with a sinister twist: the horror genre.
This year, the classics we all know will be taken by dark forces and their ink will be stained with blood. Zombies, werewolves, vampires, and other monsters will roam the pages of these books, haunting any soul who dares to take a peek.
When people purchase a regular copy of any of these novels from The Wild Detectives, they’ll also receive the digitally possessed version of the story as a treat. That’s right, no trick, just treat.
Join The Wild Detectives in reimagining your favorite stories into the new horror classics. Get your brooms out and get here ASAP. But if you prefer to stay home or need to protect yourself from the full moon, just order it from our online store.
Go get yours and do not worry, books are meant to be possessed. By you.
The Wild Detectives is your local independent bookstore bar and venue in Oak Cliff. Serious Pleasures.
