Dark Classics for the Halloween Season

As the days get shorter and we approach October, our maverick English Teacher and genre enthusiast gives us 72 works of literary merit (or at least notoriety) that can also make you lock the doors and windows, close the curtains, and leave the lights on all night. There are many more, of course, but these are the classics that got to our compiler.
