“Bø!” — The kids here all look like goth nightmares. No disney characters here. Most of the grownups don’t give out candy. But we got the skull ghost and pumpkin out, an island of candy in a country that doesn’t understand the importance of All Soul’s Eve.

Chris Offutt — I met him once in Iowa — is the writer of the HBO series True Blood. I assume he’s the same guy. Read any Cormac McCarthy? Blood Meridian or The Road are really good books I think you’d like. Also you might like Fortress of Solitude by Jonathan Letham, and the Hundred Brothers by Donald Antrim — hilarious.
