Halloween is almost here, which means so is Electric Literature’s second annual Genre Ball. If you like books, booze, and writers in funny costumes, be sure to get your ticket before they run out!

To celebrate both, we asked cartoonist and Okey-Panky Comics Editor Sara Lautman to illustrate what kind of treats famous writers will be handing out this Halloween. Enjoy!
