I was working in the lab late one night, when my eyes beheld an eerie sight: this week’s Halloween issue of On magazine.

In it you can read an Indoorsman column about my misguided attempts to make Halloween treats. (Actual quote: “It took way longer than you’d think, and our dog, Barkley, ended up getting caramel in his fur.”) And you can read a Dear Crabby column about zombie apocalypse fatigue. (“I’m not interested in any of it. ... Zombies are dumb.”)

Of course, that’s not all. We’ve also got:

• A really nice wire feature on the legacy of “The Exorcist.”

• A typically colorful book review from Inklings Bookshop manager Adam Jones, who recommends a couple of new picture books.

• An On the Menu recommendation for The Glass Onion in Goldendale, a real hidden gem and one of my new favorite restaurants.

• 10 Days Out briefs on upcoming jazz, rock, R&B and symphony performances, as well as a lutefisk dinner and a benefit for Rylee Miles, daughter of the late, beloved Sports Center bar manager Lindsey Miles.

And, as always, we’ve got all the event listings you need to plan for this weekend and beyond. Make sure you pick up your Halloween On magazine in Thursday’s Yakima Herald-Republic. It’s boo-riffic.
