Book Mail – The World of Lore: Dreadful Places by Aaron Mahnke

I’m so ready for Halloween and all the spooky things that October brings! The perfect book to get into the holiday spirit.

Thanks to Random House and Del Rey Books for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.

THE WORLD OF LORE: DREADFUL PLACES – Aaron Mahnke (Releasing October 9th, 2018)

I had no idea this was a podcast! I may have to start listening to them.


Here’s the synopsis:

Captivating stories of the places where human evil has left a nefarious mark–featuring both rare and best-loved stories from the hit podcast Lore, now a streaming television series

Sometimes you walk into a room, a building, or even a town, and you feel it. Something seems off–an atmosphere that leaves you oddly unsettled, with a sense of lingering darkness. Join Aaron Mahnke, the host of the popular podcast Lore, as he explores some of these dreadful places and the history that haunts them.

Mahnke takes us to Colorado and the palatial Stanley Hotel, where wealthy guests enjoyed views of the Rocky Mountains at the turn of the twentieth century–and where, decades later, a restless author would awaken from a nightmare, inspired to write one of the most revered horror novels of all time. Mahnke also crosses land and sea to visit frightful sites–from New Orleans to Richmond, Virginia, to the brooding, ancient castles of England–each with its own echoes of dark deeds, horrible tragedies, and shocking evil still resounding.

Filled with evocative illustrations, this eerie tour of lurid landmarks and doomed destinations is just the ticket to take armchair travelers with a taste for the macabre to places they never thought they’d visit in their wildest, scariest dreams.

This volume includes some of the best stories from the Lore podcast, such as “Echoes,” “Withering Heights,” and “Behind Closed Doors” as well as rare material.


Has anyone read either of the other two Lore books?
