message 1: by Bloodman (new)

Bloodman This is a great list! There's actually stuff on it that I like a lot! I think it's much better than the other horror book lists on this website - good job, voters!


message 2: by William (new)

William I agree. Overall a very good list that helped reorder my to-reads.


message 3: by Tressa (new)

Tressa I saw some Simon Clarks and other books I'd like to read soon.


message 4: by Carl (new)

Carl I. What do I do? Just click on numerous ones I think are the best?


message 5: by Tressa (new)

Tressa Yes.


message 6: by David (new)

David They should combine the Pet Semetary votes. There are two on the list but combined, it would have enough votes for the top 5. Great list!


message 7: by Normandy (new)

Normandy I just voted on this list. I have read several books on this list but there are so many I have not read. There are definitely some books I need to check out.


message 8: by Jeff (new)

Jeff French Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons is a superb horror novel. Anyone that's a horror fan should read this book. Chances are you will love it.


message 9: by TJ (new)

TJ Terrific list! Lots of horror classics present!


message 10: by Stephen (new)

Stephen Rathbun the ressurectionist by Wrath James White. A masterpiece and creepy as all get out


message 11: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer If you haven't read Hell House or The Devil Next Door...go get a copy!!!!

Kevin HEY ASS-BAG, with the multiple accounts! Stop posting your book on all the horror list and voting multiple times so it ranks high.

Your a disgrace to this site! Your ZOMBIE book is a pile of STEAMING CRAP!

I created this list for reference, not for some ass to push his stupid book!

I have no way to remove your multiple accounts, but I am looking into it. I also will try to pull your book from this list!

I ENCOURAGE everyone who voted on this list to rate Cryonic: A Zombie Novel 1 STAR, to teach this ass-wipe a lesson!

Kevin Thank you Susanna

message 16: by Marilyn (new)

Marilyn How are the Twilight books even on this list? It's about as scary as two-week-old, stale bread.


message 17: by Kevin (new)

Kevin People can add any book that they thought scared them. I assume someone found Twilight scary? In any case, those books haven't even broke into the top 100 list.


message 18: by Marilyn (new)

Marilyn Weaksauces, then.

Well, Twilight fans can be a little scary. I had one overhear me speaking to a fellow English major from the other side of the room. I don't remember what book we were talking about, but the Twilight fan assumed we must be talking about Twilight and decided to insert herself into our conversation. It was a harrowing experience.


message 22: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Thank you Susanna.
