What are your favorite horror books?
Pet Sematary by the King himself.
Haven’t read that in a long time!
Lots. Most recent was Head Full of Ghosts.
I just started IT
The Hollower by Mary SanGiovanni or Ghost Walk by Brian Keene
Tradd Street series by Karen White. It’s a blend of horror and paranormal. Give me the creeps
Dracula. Salem’s Lot. Harvest Home. The Other. Interview with the Vampire.
The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All by Laird Barron and The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen
I’m reading The Great God Pan right now.
Becky One of my all time favorites. Reread it every year.
Becky If you also like Kafka, Teatro Grotesco by Thomas Liggoti is a wonderful mix of Kafka and more traditional horror
I’m old school on horror: Dracula and The Haunting of Hill House
Heart-Shaped Box by Hill
Pirate of Caribbean
I just bought H.P. Lovecrafts Select Stories: Classic Horror Stories
It’s about 800 pages and cost $8… I love that it has several stores by several authors! It’s fantastic!
So was Birdbox awesome for those that read it??? Anyone NOT like it?
I’m not much into horror but I loved it!
I read it straight through, finishing at 3 am.
Peg so what was great about it?
Roger I don’t want to post a spoiler. I’ll just say that was a brave mother.
H. P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, early Steven King, Relic by Preston and Child.
Relic is soooooooo good!
Strangely, even though I’m not much into horror, Poe is an exception. I also read a lot of Lovecraft stories years ago. I like spooky but not terrifying.
Shadowland, by Peter Straub, if one of my favorites.
I don’t read scary books any more because A Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon scared the beejeezus out of me and I swore I’d never read another scary book in my life. And I haven’t. And it’s been 20 years since I read it.
Funny I just read it and didn’t find it scary at all.
Salem’s Lot – Stephen King
Cows. Everyone told me not to read it and now i’m almost done and I. LOVE. EVERY. PAGE. But yeah, don’t read it, it will scar you for life.
Almost everything by Steven King! I have really enjoyed the Mr. Mercedes trilogy.
