Anyone is welcome to jump in at anytime!

Click the titles for suggestions for each category. 

The Z Word

Walkers, Zeds, Deadheads, Biters. Whatever you call them; If it should be dead and it's not, it counts!

Strange Fiction

This is that category for the book that you say "Wow, WTF did I just read?"

Don't Sneeze

Ebola? The Plague? Kellis-Amberlee? Whatever ails you, this is the category for you.

Under the Sea

It's a big, big ocean out there. And I doubt it's full of red-headed mermaids pining for princes named Eric. Use this square for any book with monsters from the deep.

Short Story Collection

Variety is the slice of life. Anthologies or short story collections will nab you this square.

Let's Summon Demons 

Don't do this. Gates of Hell should stay closed and your arms should remain in the circle at all times.
Any book with a demon or possession gets you this square.

Howl at the Moon

Shapeshifters. Werewolves. Were-rats. (Yeah, they are a thing. Ask LKH.) Shifty people don't count. 

Bite Me

Walk softly and carry a sharpened stake. Vampires aren't the only thing that suck.

Reading Rainbow

You should be reading fiction by someone other than a cishet white dude all year but here's your square to choose a book by a writer in the LGBT+ community, a POC author, or a disabled or neurodivergent author.

Cabin in the Woods

This one is for those great abandoned locations, like a cabin in the middle of the woods, or a bunker in the middle of the artic. You know, Home Sweet Home.

Crumbling Castle

Count this one for all those lush gothic beauties out there.

Those Damn Kids

Kids. They're either hanging out in cornfields or eating all the Eggos. Use this square for coming-of-age horror.

Grimm Dark

No fairytale princesses here. The original fairytales are dark and bloody. Pick one to put your mark on this square.

Monster Mash

It was a graveyard smash. It caught on in a flash. Here's your catch-all monster square.

Killer Women

Women authors are underrated in horror. Fill in this square with a female author.

Scooby Dooby Doo
