Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Jack Ketchum narrated ten pages from Jackson's legendary horror novel "The Haunting of Hill House", which was made into The Haunting (1963). The reading took place in Burlington, Massachusetts, at the annual "Shirley Jackson Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Literature of Psychological Suspense, Horror, and the Dark Fantastic".
