Ransom Riggs pieced together a whole novel around his collection of weird photographs. (And I do mean pieced together because, by the end of his book, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the story had become disjointed and frayed around the edges. The photographs were always the main selling point for the book, however, so that hardly mattered. I still gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.com.) But what a brilliant idea, writing a novel around weird photographs!
So I scoured the Web looking for a few macabre samples—photos that would make your skin crawl and send the heebie-jeebies up and down your spine.
Did I succeed?
Are you feeling just a little bit uncomfortable?
What kind of book could you write around these morbid photographs?
A blood-sucking dummy? A ventriloquist that kills?
A writer and his muse? A Bram Stoker-winning team!
This photo really gives me the creeps!
Halloween—or a twisted version of the Ku Klux Klan?
