The best supernatural horror books ever!

Ulysses "the-dragon-slayer"
The list author says: "Lucky 13?"
The Amityville Horror
The Amityville Horror
"You can be dubious about the veracity of this "true story" all you want, but it's certainly a scary book."
Hell House
Hell House
"One of the genuine classics of the genre."
The Casebook of Carnacki the Ghost Finder (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)
The Casebook of Carnacki the Ghost Finder (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)
"Astonishing that these stories were written before the First World War, they're so modern. Very influential on supernatural fiction. My favourite story of the original paranormal investigator is 'The Gateway of the Monster' - superb!"
The Exorcist
The Exorcist
"Another horror classic. Not much to say, except - scary!"
Tales Of Ghostly Horror: Real-Life Encounters With The Supernatural
Tales Of Ghostly Horror: Real-Life Encounters With The Supernatural
"This collection of real-life supernatural stories is superb for those long, dark nights where you want to feel a primal sense of dread and fear. Amazing to think that these 23 stories are based on actual interview evidence and first -hand experience of paranormal events and investigations in England."
The Definitive H.P. Lovecraft: 67 Tales of Horror in One Volume (Halcyon Classics)
The Definitive H.P. Lovecraft: 67 Tales of Horror in One Volume (Halcyon Classics)
"Impossible to avoid mentioning HP Lovecraft, the master of the art of supernatural fiction. "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown," wrote Lovecraft. I must definitely agree with him."
The Nightland: A Love Tale (Classics of science fiction)
The Nightland: A Love Tale (Classics of science fiction)
"Another classic from Hodgson. There's an epic scope to this novel, with huge vistas of unearthly horror in the far, far future. I'm surprised they haven't ever made a film of it, it's perfect for the big screen."
The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story
The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story
"Relatively unknown, this is nonetheless a great piece of supernatural fiction. There's also the film and stage-play, which people might be more familiar with."
The Haunting of Hill House (Penguin Classics)
The Haunting of Hill House (Penguin Classics)
"A good novel, but something about it just doesn't sit well with me. Personal taste, I suppose. But don't let that put you off. Much preferred the film adaptation, 'The Haunting,' directed by Robert Wise.'"
The Return Of The Sorcerer: The Best Of Clark Ashton Smith
The Return Of The Sorcerer: The Best Of Clark Ashton Smith
"A talented writer of horror, fantasy and science fiction. I love his style and use of atmosphere, and the unpredictability of his stories - something truly lacking these days."
A Stir of Echoes
A Stir of Echoes
"Not up to the standard of 'Hell House,' but this is a worthy novel from Richard Matheson. Many people love it, yet I get a sense of having seen it all before!"
The Turn of the Screw and Other Short Novels (Signet Classics)
The Turn of the Screw and Other Short Novels (Signet Classics)
"Aspects of this novel are somewhat dated, but the use of ambiguity and emphasis on psychological horror is good."
Pet Sematary
Pet Sematary
"Plenty of Stephen King works I could mention, but I always sort of liked this one!"
