Anybody heard of Graham Masterton? Fantastic horror writer. I'll be posting a brief article on him soon at the Horror Literature site, so keep an eye out for it. I'll recommend some of his books as well. His writing style is very different and his literature is embracing. Try grab one of them and let me know what you think!

Bentley Little, by far.

King, Koontz, Saul are all pretty common favorites I think. I don't much care for anything King has written in well, forever. His Bachman books are his best, imo.

But, if you really want to read something different, try Little. King recommends him as well. I would recommend starting with "The Association" or "The Store" for Little. Those are my two favorites. They are graphic, so beware. Not for kids.

Jack Ketchum is ok. I do NOT recommend watching any of the movies that are based on his books. They are awful.

Laymon is ok.

I've read "Dominion" and "The Vanishing" by Little. I wasn't overwhelmed by them, they were good enough though to hold my interest, though.

I know I've got something of Masterton's around here somewhere...obviously it wasn't something that stuck in my head - so didn't leave a big impression. But i do recognize the name. I'll have to go rummage downstairs and see if i can find it.

Yeah, I wasn't AS impressed with those two titles, which is why I recommended the other two to start with. Lately I've been more into paranormal type boooks, so I've been reading various series that have psychics, werewolves, vampires, witches, etc. in them.

I will try those other two...

I've been needing a new author to check out. I just read too fast for my authors to keep up with writing for me, LOL!

You know, I'm generally a fan of Little, but some of his work seems formulaic. He spins great yarns that sometimes just seem to slap you in the face; for a horror writer, that's a GOOD thing.

King's writing seemed to change after his near-death experience. Which is quite understandable!

He even wrote it "into the script" in the Dark Tower series.

H.P. Lovecraft is my favorite, easily. He can transport me to a different place unlike any other horror writer. _________________________ When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained. - Mark Twain [url=http://www.pokerchips.com/]casino poker chips[/url] [url=http://www.dogbedswarehouse.com/]raised dog beg[/url] [url=http://www.performancechipsdirect.com/Cadillac/]Cadillac Performance Chips[/url]
