We are all afraid of something, whether it's a horror movie monster or a more palpable physical fear, and Halloween is the time of year when these fears are out in the open. 

Some fears are rational (a spider bite could have some frightening symptoms), while others make little sense (your dentist probably doesn't want to pull all your teeth out), but we're here to help you face them all!

Whatever you're afraid of, we have a great book that will help you face down your biggest fear — just in time for the scariest day of the year.

Halloween and goodies go together like a witch and her broomstick, so for your Halloween snack menu, we turned to the expert on all things witch-related: author and illustrator Gregoire Solotareff.

His book Dictionary of Witches is filled with everything there is to know about these creepy crones and even has a handful of frightful foods that witches love.

Old Toronto Houses by Tom Cruikshank with photography by John de Visser is filled with examples of houses that could fill in for a haunted house in any horror film. In its pages are the oldest homes in Toronto as well as the most architecturally interesting houses still standing.

There aren’t any ghostly tales included in Cruickshank’s history of the city’s historic homes, so we’ve done some supernatural research ourselves to get you in a Halloween mood. Haunted or not, these amazing houses have incredible stories to tell about the city Firefly Books calls home.
