Shirley Jackson, horror author and short-story master, was born on this day in 1919.

She is best known for her short story “The Lottery,” which drew a record amount of mail for the New Yorker (where it appeared), and the novels The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle.

In honor of the occasion, here's a roundup of Jackson news from the past few years.
