Have you noticed the turn? The night has begun its slow and steady march to consume the day. There’s the barest hint of a chill. October is here and lurking at the end of the month is Halloween. What better time is there to read Haunted Nights? This excellent collection of horror short stories celebrate the coming of All Hallows’ Eve with frightening tales. For a truly scary experience, read these when you’re home alone at night like I did. You’ll be left wondering if that’s just a trick of the shadow or is something staring at you from the dark.

Lynn Nottage won a second Pulitzer for her play Sweat, the only woman playwright to have been honored twice. Critics called Sweat a prophetic vision for the times we find ourselves embroiled in. After reading it in a single day, I can tell you it does not disappoint. Set in one of the poorest cities in America, this play is a powerful and heartfelt look at the tragedies of race, class, and identity. These complex themes tie themselves into a knot with no easy solution.

Despite being a lifelong nerd, I was still shocked by the tidal wave of hatred that deluged Zoe Quinn during Gamergate. In her new book, she shows the toxicity and difficulties people from marginalized communities face online as well as from those they turn to for help. She lays out a blueprint for how we can take action against the worst the internet has to offer. Most importantly, she reminded me that people deserve to be known for more than just their tragedies, more than even their triumphs over tragedy. They should be known for who they decide they are.
