Dare to be scared with some October-friendly fiction from Audible!

Audible is the premier online provider of digital audiobooks and more. It's the perfect companion for long commutes, while doing errands or chores, or just relaxing at home on a dark and stormy night. You can listen to spine-tingling stories from your favorite authors, revisit thrilling classics, or discover new authors and titles fit for a frightfully fun fall.

Some of our favorites for this time of year include The Shining and Pet Sematary, both by master of horror Stephen King, the timeless Dracula written by Bram Stoker and performed by narrators including Alan Cumming and Tim Curry, and Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Also be sure to check out the new Channels feature in Audible, where you can experience a wide variety of original programming and playlists, including plenty that will fit right in to the feeling of the season.

Audible is free to download, and content can be accessed through a subscription or individual purchases.
