Horror Corner with Nikita & Christina

Horror Corner celebrates the worst nightmares literature has to offer, from pure horror to weird and eclectic fiction. Every month, some of our spookiest booksellers—Nikita and Christina—pick out some of their favorite books and pair them with art and movies to give you the heebie-jeebies...which is why they also pair their selections with cocktails. You need something to help wash the terror down.
