Horror question

So BTT had a Halloweeny question yesterday:
What with yesterday being Halloween, and all . . . do you read horror? Stories of things that go bump in the night and keep you from sleeping?

well, yeah! no, HELL YEAH! The whole reason i signed up for RIP was to read some scary spooky stuff. I have always loved Stephen King, Clive Barker, vampires, Zombies, Poe, psychological thrillers. The problem is so much of horror can be absolute trash. I have never been able to finish a Dean Koontz or John Saul novel. I don't care how many these guys sell, they are crap. Every time i take a chance on one i give up. Give me Bradbury, Phillip K Dick, Preston and Child. These guys can write. I'd rather reread Frankenstein or Jekyll and Hyde than read something bad.

so maybe i am a snob after all. :)

  1. You do like it all! Haha I read some horror, although I can be picky about what I am willing to pick up.

  2. I agree. I get bored rather than scared reading horror stuff!
