Codices of the Occult
I am Legend
-One of the first books of horror I ever read and one that I still love.
Planks of Reason
-A volume of essays confronting the genre of horror films
The Hair Wreath and Other Tales
-I randomly picked this up during the Borders liquidation (mostly for the cool cover art), but I was not disappointed.
A Cannibal's Letter Home
-This is a great piece of writing by my friend Rachel Richardson, an up and coming creative writer of incredible talent.
The Tales of H.P. Lovecraft
-Oldies but goodies.
The Handmaid's Tale
-Not really a horror story, but terrifying none the less.
The Stepford Wives
-Surprisingly simple and truly creepy.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
-Seriously, what rained out recess in elementary school was not made better by reading these aloud? And those illustrations! Fantastic!
World War Z
-Truly chilling, for me, these stories got to the heart of terror.
