(aside from Dean Koontz, other writers have a knack for horror, mystery or suspense. If you like to be thrilled then you should draw from this list without waiting. It's time to be…scared to death)


This section will be slowly but constantly updated with info about every author and reviews of some of their books. Be patient…

Richard Laymon: one of the most unrestrained, downright horror writers of the last years, Laymon has written a couple of short stories collections and more than two dozen of novels. Get in touch with his roller-coaster-ride plots and with his nasty characters. (updated 15/4/00)


Peter Straub: not as vast as other writers', Straub's production nevertheless tackles most of modern horror literature forms.

Classic Horror: here you'll find some vintage horror classics that have probably broken the boundaries of  horror fiction, settling in the nobler realm of  the internationally acclaimed masterpieces of all time……let's start with:
