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="" />)

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".
