Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, animals both domesticated and wild, I thought we'd take a little tour around the U.S. and visit the Top 13 Horror Attractions of 2009. Now you're probably asking yourself, How did he manage to get around to all these haunts so early in the Halloween season? Well, I didn't.  This is more of a wish list compiled from recommendations by Fangoria.com, Hauntworld.com and Travelchannel.com.

And don't forget, dear reader, only one week left before the release of my latest short story Garbage, Inc., so polish up them eyeballs.
