Three for the price of one! My favorite Halloween books:

#5 The October Country by Ray Bradbury

#4 Batman: The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale

#3 Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Bradbury is the king of Halloween spookiness and mystery as far as I am concerned - as much as Stephen King is the
master of horror, Bradbury turns the best tales of cool autumn winds, crackling leaves and carnivals in darkening fields.

Bringing it back to comics, The Long Halloween was the third time that Loeb and Sale tackled Batman in his "Year One" setting and made the whole affair an year long event that started and finished on All Hallow's. If you can't see the beauty of using the Bat's Rogues Gallery in a Halloween story, you've lost me and should probably surf on by!
