Spooky Suggestions Wanted

Hi All,

I know I’m a tad late to the Halloween party (I’ve been pretty sick over the last few days so haven’t been online a great deal) but, as the title suggests, I’m really hungering for some good spooky horror.

I was just curious if any of you remembered reading anything that really gave you shivers and had you on edge even after finishing. I remember enjoying ‘The Secret of Crickley Hall’ and would love for something similar or even more creepy. Whether it’s a mainstream author or an indie one that has little to no exposure, if they can get my heart racing and make me fear the dark, they are the folk for me.

Any suggestions welcomed 🙂

      1. There’s some good stuff in his new collection (Full Throttle). In terms of the novels, I think Heart Shaped Box is the creepiest, Horns is the most disturbing, and NOS4A2 is the best. I wasn’t a huge fan of The Fireman.

      2. I guess it depends on the mood you’re in. I usually recommend publication order, because I’m a nerd who likes to watch an author develop, but if you aren’t sure you’re going to read more than one…it’s a tough call.

  1. I just finished House of Leaves, and while parts of it gave me nightmares, a lot of it was a slog, unfortunately. If you pick it up and just read the found footage parts it could be fun. I wish someone would make an abridged version with just that.

    Anyway- I’ll think on this a bit today and see what I come up with. Glad you are feeling better!

    1. Oh! I’m listening to Guillermo Del Toro’s The Strain now and really loving it! I don’t know that it’s the scariest I’ve ever read but I know you like audio and this one is good (the narrator is wonderful).
