How can King have more votes than Poe? That's just wrong...

Get ready to open the doors to the Hall, Stephen King is chomping at the bit to be the first one in! Boris is showing his age, but still holding on to second place. Edgar Allen Poe hits the halfway mark in 3rd. Vincent Price moves into 4th with 8, while Lovecraft is currently in 5th with 7 and Lon Sr. right behind at 6. Matheson is next with 5 while Clive Barker and Bela move ahead of the rest of the pack with 4.

There were two votes for 'Chaney', which I added to Lon Sr. Let me know if either of those were meant for Lon Jr. and please clarify Chaney Sr. or Jr. going forward, thanks! And if anyone ever misspells 'Chaney' as 'Cheney', yep you got it, that vote goes for former Vice President Dick Cheney!

King gets one vote closer to the Hall with 17
Karloff holding steady 2nd with 13
Poe next with 12
Vincent hits the halfway point with 10
Lovecraft is #5 with 7

Bela moves up a couple spots, tied now with Lon Sr at 6
Matheson still at 5, side by side with his date for the evening Vampira also with 5
Fighting for the coveted 10th spot are Romero, Barker, and Carpenter all with 4

Thanks for the votes and Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there!

J. Case says:
Wes Craven Created one of the vilest villains in Horror and Movie history was created Freddy Krueger. You can't avoid him because you must sleep. Also created the real life Horror of Red Eye, The original The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House on Left, he is to Horror what Michaelangeo was to Painting.

Joe R Lansdale is a great writer and I certainly considered him for top 100. A few more horror efforts and it would have been an easy call.

J Case - I will count your Wes Craven vote. You have two more for today if you want. Wes does tend to be underrated somewhat, I think due to the varying quality of his work. No disagreement on his contributions to the genre.
