Just got Night of the *holes by Kevin Donihe, and from the library, October Country, by Bradbury.

I tried to give a link to the first one using Amazon's own system, but they rejected it and told me to see their guidelines re objectionable content.

Robert, I can highly recommend Peter Straub's Ghost Story, if you haven't already read it; however, it's not yet on Kindle. Follow the link and click the button to vote for having it available for Kindle - many of us have, and are actively recruiting anyone who wants it in that format.

My problem is that I'm finding 3-5 horror eBooks that are free each day now, thanks to the KDP option... I'm looking at over a hundred horror eBooks right now that I'll never get to... but I can't stop adding to my Kindle... of course, I am reading 1 or 2 a day but stockpiling that many as well... anyone else having this problem?

I'm reading it now, Clay...so far, very good at 50% in.

Hi, Nick:

thanks, I did read it and just commented on it in another thread! I feel I've run through most of the "good" horror books and authors. I feel a lot of the horror writers (at least those in print) are not very good; I just can't make it through their work.

And on the Kindle ebooks...God help us. I don't think I can take any more zombie, werewolves, vampires or end-of-the-world/plague novels. Please...no more, okay? I don't want to discourage new writers and authors, especially the stuff that I love to write and read, but please no more...no more. Be kind...okay?

Story idea: follow me on this one, okay?

A vampire mates with a werewolf, but their child is born a zombie that can spread a plague through the shedding of its skin, thus enacting the End O The World thingy. In the aftermath of the ruins, one zombie finds true love with a girl zombie, and as they eat each others flesh and proclaim their love, the sun comes up on the horizon and--glorious!--they say, "At least there are no more writers to write books about vampires, zombies or werewolves...We Are Legend!"

THE END

Cheers!

<I feel I've run through most of the "good" horror books and authors.>

Rob, no way! Have you checked out any of the following:
Kealan Patrick Burke
James Everington
Alan Ryker
Iain Rowan
Tim Curran
Brian Keene

To name a few recent discoveries on my part.

Posted on Jan 11, 2012 10:24:20 AM PST
Rob, you do seem to have quite a few ebooks out there.
Which would you recommend someone try first?

Charlene, I haven't tried:

Alan Ryker
Iain Rowan

I will check them out, thanks...!

as per my stuff, I am not sure (they're all my children, complete with flaws, but I love them to death)...I also don't want to self promote and get in trouble. I just submitted one called THE SWARM, and it'll be 99 cent for promotion. It's my most recent, but if you can't wait for Amazon to make it available, I would suggest THOSE OF THE LIGHT & DARK, or EASTERLY RETREAT or STRANGE PLACES

best,

Thank you! I don't want to get you into trouble either. : )

I have the same problem. I check the kindle forum everyday for Joyce's list of free books. I do "find" for horror to check out the horror books. If I read the description and it's another werewolf/vampires in love or zombie survival novel, I don't bother with it. I haven't even read World War Z yet. I've seen the Twilight movies with my wife, but just not really interested in reading about that stuff. I'm more into extreme/gore horror. To each their own. I spend my time on the free books because I can't afford to buy every book I want. The story I'm reading right now is in horrible need of editing, but it's still a decent read despite its problems. I suppose if I come across anything too bad I'll just skip it & delete it.

Two writers that I discovered back in 2010 that I can recommend are Scott Nicholson and Brian Hodge. Nicholson writes horror and mystery, and Hodge writes horror, fantasy and crime/suspense.

I'm reposting this, since the contest started today...

There's an upcoming Kindle Fire contest from Ereader News Today. Authors included are horror and mystery writer Scott Nicholson, who has made a number of (non-spam) appearances on the "Horror Books" thread, his sometimes collaborator J.R. Rain, and two other authors I'm not acquainted with. See the link for more details.

http://ereadernewstoday.com/free-kindle-fire-contest-coming-up/6710212/

P.S. H.T. Night seems to write nothing but YA and Paranormal Romance; well, nothing's perfect. But the ebooks are free, so I can't complain (much). Also, the titles change daily.

Alice is forever priced at 99 cents. It's a novelette, so it's a fun afternoon read.

Posted on Jan 12, 2012 7:24:02 AM PST
Nick, I am not familiar with Brian Hodge. Is there any particular one you would recommend?

hey 'Timmy Quinn' readers --- there's a collection of all 4 books for $4.99 -- cheaper than getting them indivually -- Stage Whispers: The Collected Timmy Quinn Stories

The only Brian Hodge Kindle book I've read (when it was published in hardcover by Cemetery Dance) is Mad Dogs. It's one of his crime/suspense novels, and it was the best novel I read in 2010. Prototype sounds interesting to me. The Convulsion Factory and Falling Idols are short story collections.

You can pick up several of his OOP hardcovers and paperbacks for $0.01. I recommend Wild Horses, another crime/ suspense novel with Carl Hiaasen-like humor.

I have two other collections of his, not immediately to hand, so I'll check the titles and let you know.

Posted on Jan 13, 2012 5:13:11 AM PST
Thanks, Nick! I'm going to check out one of them, at least.

My horror novel Diana's Dreams (Whispers) is FREE today, FRIDAY THE 13th only! I hope you have a lucky one!
