Every now and then, I like to update the five or so books I’ve read lately that I really enjoyed. I’d recommend these five books to anybody who loves good horror. Here’s my guarantee–if you read one of these books and don’t like it, I will send you one of my novels for free. They are that good. Pick one up and enjoy, and for a more through description, check out my reviews section! In no particular order…
The Croning by Laird Barron — Wonderful Lovecraftian-esque tale about an ancient god and the cult that worships him and his brethren. If you like weird fiction and cosmic horror, you will like this book.
The Donors by Jeffrey Wilson –Truly frightening old-school horror. Monsters that travel in the shadows, feeding off fear and harvesting it in hospital surgery wards. Probably shouldn’t read if you have an upcoming operation.
Twice Shy by Patrick Freivald — Creative. Funny. Scary. Wonderful. All these words could be used to describe Twice Shy, one of the best zombie novels I have ever read. It’s not like most zombie fiction–normally a negative for me since I like my zombies old school–but I guarantee you will enjoy it.
The Devil of Echo Lake by Douglas Wynne — This book deserves to be a horror classic, in my view. Takes the story of Robert Johnson and the crossroads and infuses new, 21st century life into it. But there’s more than meets the eye to this book. There’s also an ancient power, lurking in the shadows, that puts the devil to shame. And man I love the cover. Check it out.
High Moor by Graeme Reynolds — If you follow this blog, you know how much I loved this book. I’m not much of a werewolf guy, but this novel is both one of the best werewolf books I have read and one of the best horror novels I have read, period.
