The Casual Horror Fan's Bookshelf

S. D. Beallis
The list author says: "I have been a fan of horror novels and short stories for quite a few years now, since discovering the works of Stephen King and others. These are some of the horror novels I have enjoyed and that make worthy additions to a collection of horror novels. (There are books by King, McCammon and Simmons that I would have added but didn't find on the product locator.)"
