    I absolutely love horror novels especially

    paranormal books. I have a kindle and I have well over a hundred horror/paranormal ebooks, I also have quite a bit of biographies from the old Hollywood. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any new horror authors, I would appreciate that. Thanks

    Robert McCammon novel. The covers look cheesy and they're mostly late 80's books but man do they deliver. Horror , adventure and passion all masterfully blended

    I Love To Read "classic Horror Novels"

    I mean, I do enjoy Stephen King and all, that's good. But for my taste, there is nothing better than the old gothic stories and Lovecraft stories.

    I've read about 15 of his books. He's pretty imaginative (except in his titles; they mostly start with the word "The"). My favorites are: The House, The Walking, The Summoning, The Burning, The Revelation, and Dominion. His style isn't as sick as say Laymon and Lee but there's...
