netherworlds of movies, TV, literature, video games, comic books, and graphic
novels, The Book of Lists: Horror offers a blood-feast of
forbidden knowledge that horror fans are hungry to devour, including:
Stephen King's Ten Favorite Horror Novels or Short Stories--learn
what scares the master Top Six Grossing Horror Movies of All Time in the
United States-- which big shocks translated into big bucks? Top Ten
Horror-Themed Rock 'n' Roll Songs--maybe it is 'devil's music' after all.
And much, much more.
