Alex Recommend disgusting books for me. I’m familiar and a fan of Richard Laymon, James Herbert, and Brian Keene. Challenge me and anyone else following this!

Decent length novels, no short stories, thanks. Monsters, sex, gore, taboo themes (no underage characters), and absolutely no vampires or shapeshifters. Sick of them. Werewolves/wolves are acceptable.

Anne (w/ an E) (mzcatnthehat) | 754 comments I hear Edward Lee is pretty disgusting.


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* (erinpaperbackstash) | 875 comments Wolf Hunt was fun. There's gore and humor, but it's a light and quick read so not sure if that suits you.

Video Night A Novel of Alien Horror by Adam Cesare

I think most of these meet your criteria. Video Night has high school students so that might be out.
