Edward Lee and Wrath James White write some extreme horror - strong nerves and strong stomachs needed.

Personal recommendations:
Edward Lee: Flesh Gothic
James Wrath White: The Resurrectionist

I've had Lee on my TBR for a while now, but I've never heard of this White guy.
Thanks, Nick!

They ARE pretty hardcore books, so don't say you weren't warned. ;)

Warning taken, Nick!

I agree with Robert. What's the deal with Zombies? I prefer horror that feels more real, like Hungry Moon. What's scarier than facing a hungry Grizzly?

This is an excellent discussion site! I've listed 10 books I'm looking into just by reading everyones notes. Zombies and vampires are out!

LOL loving the thinly-concealed adverts. If they're humorous why not? Anyway besides those mentioned I found Ryan Callaway's two novels to be very good horror novels (a girlfriend turned me onto Lights Out first). Pretty original stories and solid writing. I will have to check out this "Seed" as well. Not sure I can handle the heart-wrenching parts of it but will give it a shot.

Lights Out
The Yearly Harvest

Hmm. Which should I read next? Ghost Road Blues by Maberry, or Off Season by Ketchum?

Craig Clarke says:
Off Season, definitely. Ketchum is fantastic. Also check out Randy Chandler.

Posted on Jan 17, 2012 10:03:42 AM PST
I don't know Clay, but I vote for Ghost Road Blues! (that whole trilogy ROCKS)

Of course, I haven't read any Ketchum yet, so don't mind me!

Suzanne, nice to 'meet' you!
Got any recommendations for us? *wink*

Posted on Jan 17, 2012 10:19:54 AM PST
I've only read The Lost by Ketchum, and was not really impressed. But, I don't really feel like it was horror.

Been on a Laymon kick: Island, In the Dark, then After Midnight. All three were great.

I had previously read Come out Tonight and Night in the Lonesome October and kind of dismissed him, although NITLO was good. I think my tastes have changed somewhat. And while I'm in full time studies, I kind of prefer those quick reads.

I've been looking for a while for collections of Victorian ghost stories in Kindle format, but without much success. Does anyone have any good suggestions?

So far, I've found this, which looks quite interesting: Victorian Frightenings: Volume Two (Horror Anthology Vol II)

I've read read many of the the short stories from this book previously (on normal paper-based books), and enjoyed them, and would like to find more of the same.

Posted on Jan 17, 2012 1:37:14 PM PST
Olly, Here's some, many for free.
Nineteen Ghost Stories of M. R. James to Keep You Up At Night The Complete Three Volume Collection
The Best Ghost Stories
The Empty House and Other Ghost Stories

I'm a big fan of Laymon myself but haven't read any in a long while. Think that's what I'll read next. Trying very hard not to self promote a book that's free at the minute. Think I'll head over to the right place in the meet our authors forum to do it.

Ohh, good post. Y'all have definitely convinced me to buy Seed. Sounds like many of you enjoyed it. Some other books on here sound good too, I had to check em out. I found a new horror series the other day while browsing around, it wasn't free, but they had me anyway with .99 LOL. The first one is called Marinade, I think the series is called The wishing well series by Rebecca Ratliff. It was pretty good. That's my two cents if anyone is lookiing for a series :) My sister loves werewolf books, anyone know of any good series out? We're big on series' if you haven't guessed :P

A couple of good werewolf books I've read on Kindle recently are
Beneath a Winter Moon a great violent werewolf novel
The Forsaken Boy, a werewolf novel another great werewolf book with a high body count.

A great vampire horror book:
DRACULAS (A Novel of Terror) a colaboration between Jeff Strand, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch

Also I've recently downloaded and old favorite on Kindle:
Usher's Passing

Posted on Jan 20, 2012 10:43:35 PM PST
Usher's Passing is one great novel. I held off reading it because the premise sounded kind of lame, but after reading it, it could be one of my top five reads ever...definitely top ten.
