Savaging the Dark by Christopher Conlon Whereas Tampa introduced an admitted predator from the first page, Conlon takes care to build a believable case for how Mona justifies her taboo actions, even as her control of the situation—and her sanity—slip out of her grasp.
Of all the novels on this list, Savaging the Dark may be one of the scariest if only because of its plausibility. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier Geek Love by Katherine Dunn Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill An over-the-hill rock star buys a haunted suit on the Internet. World War Z by Max Brooks Zombie fiction has never come close to the cultural impact and artistic importance of zombie cinema, until World War Z came along. He shows us how the infection could realistically spread around the globe thanks to human trafficking.
He shows us how modern militaries could possibly be defeated via poor planning and mass defections. He shows us how society might be after 90 percent of humanity has been killed and an uneasy rebuilding period has begun.
The Other by Thomas Tryon Little Star by John Ajvide Lindqvist With shades of Carrie , Little Star does little to dissuade that similarity. Two young girls, one extraordinary and one suffocating under her own feelings of mediocrity, connect online and form a friendship that will have terrible consequences. Lindqvist taps into the modern-day fears that drive adolescent anxiety—less locker room, more Internet comment section—and stretches them out to their most disturbing logical conclusion. The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes While horror has always flourished on the small-press scene, Lauren Beaukes is helping to forge a continued legacy for the genre at major publishers as well.
As in her exceptional follow-up, Broken Monsters , South African novelist Beukes weaves together a diverse cast of characters and just enough science fiction to complicate her premise without distracting from the horror at hand. Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum The novel, which is based on the Indiana murder case of Sylvia Likens, follows single mother, alcoholic and next-door neighbor Ruth, who takes in two nieces after their parents die in a car accident.
At the Mountains of Madness by H. Lovecraft Madness in particular has captivated the imaginations of audiences consistently since it was first published in , and its bitterly cold, ice-caked horrors can be felt reverberating through the ages and all the way into modern AMC TV series such as the first season of The Terror. And when those forces wake up to the annoyance of human incursion? The Ceremonies by T. Klein Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice Is the novel truly horror, or is it gothic romance?
