James Herbert – The Fog. I will never forget the school scene! Horrendous!
Ooh I always forget about James Herbert! Sure read something of his when I was younger x
I used to love Steven King but have totally gone off horrors as I’ve got older….
Did anyone read the point horrors when they were teens? Loved them!!
Yes! I still have mine as well. I loved them:D
Yes I read Point horrors! I had totally forgot about them!
I used to love Point Horror books. I think I still have a couple.
I loved the Lestat novels by Anne Rice. Bloody brilliant
I would reccomend heart shaped box and horns by Joe hill (Stephen kings son). Horns in particular is one of my favourite books.
I’ve got horns on my amazon wish list to buy once I’ve reduced my pile in the house a bit ? I seen the movie and it made me curious cause the written works if usually 10x better and fuller x
Shaun Hudson – Assassin.. I heard about this book when I was 12 & was made to promise not to read it until I was 16…I didn’t.. Near ly vommed more than once but it’s a very good book
I loved Shaun Hudson. I’m sure I’ve still got some of his books. What was the one about slugs….razor sharp teeth. I was about 16 when i read them. People always died whilst having sex ? xx
@Clare that’ll be slugs ? I still have assassin lol dead people coming back to life lol xx
Haha! There must have been more than 1 book cos I’m sure I had like 3 in 1. I read one of his about foetus. It was very disturbed. I’ve read assassin too but can’t remember. My memory is terrible. Speaking of horrors I remember loving Desperation by Stephen King….but I couldn’t tell you now what it was about xx
@Clare oooh maybe I just remember the name of the first one as it was slug lol I never got away with Stephen King… Assassin is the one with the dead gang coming back to life & the prostitute giving a dead man a bj lol ? xx
Im not at home now, but when i get back im gonna see what books i have. And more than likely read them all again lol. Over 20 years since I read them. You’d think I’d remember that scene haha. He was good at shock factor. I remember a couple having sex in a barn and getting eaten by the slugs. I think 1 of the later books was set in an underground xx
Clare Tingate might hunt mine out ? his descriptions are pretty graphic lol x
Which one to read first haha xx
Assassin or relics for me lol xx
Love Stephen King and Goosebumps books were great too still love those ?
This genre is not for me!! ?
James Herbert was the author who inspired me to write. The Rats trilogy is still my favourite trilogy of all time.
Not my type of book at all
Oh I used to love James Herbert books!
Stephen King! LOVE all of them! When I was young, I stayed away from King, because I compared his books to the cheesy horror movies. (70s and 80s) Finally, about 2 years ago, I gave them a whirl and LOVED them. I feel ashamed I compared his writing to the movies. He truly is a mastermind! His books are far more than horror that he is always associated with. And the details! Amazing!
BTW, I started my own small online group that is dedicated to horror, thriller, urban fantasy, mystery. If anyone interested
?? I’ve given up trying to read horror….due to my eyes being closed most of the time ???
Susan Hill is the author of The Woman In Black and a really good creepy one called The Man in the Picture. Love them both. Also, Anne Rice’s The Witching Hour and its sequels..Lasher and Taltos..very deep
I have never read Anne rice. I am thinking I should after seeing these comments!
I used to be afraid to read stephen king books, until I read bram stokes dracula, revelation!. The drama, suspense and terror. I had goosebumps reading it. After that, mere blood and gore, no problem. Read kings “salems lot” ok, but no real comparison.
