steven king. he really gets in there and sets your imagination off&running!

that, to me, is the key to being a good writer - especially when it comes to horror/suspense.

Our SF book club read James Herbert's the Rats last year - not my favourite per se but I was reminded of how gritty and nasty he could be, even in such a short novel. For personal faves I love some of the older material - ghost tales from E F Benson or Poe, best read by flickering candles on a winter night.

It depends on what kind of mood I am in, technically. Sometimes, I need a good ghost story to spook me out; somwtimes, only the "end of the world" scenario can nab me. I love many different wirters of the genre....I will always have a special soft place in my twisted heart for Lovecraft, as well as S.K. When I was eight, a snuk one of his short story books...hehehe...and I'm still disturbed, thank you very much.

Justin I never had one doubt in my mind that you were not disturbed he-he. Just joking. <img src="/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />)

Alright, all you aspiring, starving artists...now's your chance to wow the publishing world and get some extra cash to boot. Take advantage! Build your resume! Win glory and fame! And, for Pete's sake, go outside once in a while and enjoy the fresh air!

I use to really like John Saul. But lately his books have been deep drags. I don't think I've read any other Horror books since then. I've read some Ann Rice, but I don't really concider her Horror, more like Goth/romance. I don't really care for Steven King. I did read a book by Clive Barker and it wasn't too bad. I forgot the book's name.

Does Richard Laymon qualify as horror writer? Then I would go for him. The only books I bought on a regular basis!

The best horror writer I read, and can recommend to any fearless woman, is Angus Balfour. Her horror story I read is: "Shades of Singapore".
