Statue of Dante at the University of Scranton

Looking for a good intellectual Halloween read?  You might want to try this fella's classic The Divine Comedy,  particulary the Inferno section.  If you are not familiar with the fourteenth century Italian writer and poet Dante Allighieri, the Inferno section of the book refers to Hell.   If you find fourteenth century literature somewhat tedious reading,  Inferno by acclaimed science fiction writers Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle is a creepy and quite entertaining read, with the setting based on Dante's description.
