message 1: by Maarit (last edited Sep 07, 2014 12:03PM) (new)

Maarit Removed the following book: Under Lock and Key: The Experiment, which doesn't qualify for this list, as it's not part of the top 50 books stated behind the link and as the list says no adding books that don't belong.


message 2: by Barry (new)

Barry Could perhaps this be retitled as 'Flavorwire's 50 Scariest?' Because otherwise, going in, it sounds misleadingly like it's a generic/anyperson's list of 50 books.


message 3: by Tony (new)
