If you are a fan of horror, and really long to be creeped out, here is a list of authors who will give you the willies. Please accept Edgar Allan Poe as the CEO of horror, and we’ll move on the the rest.
Ambrose Pierce. Paul Wilson. John Saul. Ramsey Campbell. Joe R Lansdale. Peter Straub. Dean Koontz. Clive Barker. H.P. Lovecraft. Dan Simmons.
Stepen Kings early works are pretty good reading.” The Shining” ( my favorite of his books ),” Carrie”, and” Salems Lot” are all reasonably sized novels which are fun to read.
One of the best classic horror/ghost stories is The Haunting of Hill House, by Shirley Jackson. Audrey Niffenegger has written a great modern ghost story called ” Her Fearful Symmetry “ ” A Discovery of Witches ” by Deborah Harkness is a fun, more modern take on the subject of witches. For a more classic run-down- English- manor- haunted- house type novel with great moodiness, try anything by Norah Lofts. ” Gads Hall” and ” The Haunting of Gad’s Hall ” will fill your dark and stormy nights quite well!
