Looking to get spooked? Some recent additions to the Waterloo Digital Library (WDL) will help you get into the spirit of the Halloween season.
The Maines Pincock family fonds consists of material documenting the lives, interests and activities of Jenny Pincock, as well as her sister and brother-in-law Minnie and Fred Maines. The main focus of the fonds is the activities surrounding their interest in spiritualism.
Need some costume inspiration? Ranging from westerns and hardboiled crime to science fiction, fantasy and exploitation, the covers for our pulp fiction holdings reflect changing and emerging societal attitudes about topics such as race, sexuality and technology. Among the selection of pulp fiction covers included here are titles from the B.P. Nichol Library of Science Fiction, the Lesbian Literature Collection and the Black Experience Collection.
You can also check out some of these covers in person at the exhibit happening this term at Special Collections & Archives.
