Don't get this!
Not really into sci-fi or fantasy unless it's of the Philip K. Dick or Neil Gaiman variety. Non fiction (unless it's on my wishlist). Religious books, romance, self-help. Love horror but please no Stephen King, Dean Koontz...
My lists are a good place to see what I'm into and have already read or own. Open to suggestions not on my wishlist too. Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/andrewzschwarz
azs320's Secret Santa is RidgewayGirl. Help RidgewayGirl pick the right book.
Bowerbirds-Library: The Ghost Stories of E.F.Benson. (Thu, 29 Nov 2018 07:40:13 -0500)
ChessFanatic: If they want horror that is not King or Koontz, and is into weird stuff, I would suggest Bentley Little. I have read his earlier stuff up through "Dispatch" and I can tell you the best three of those are "The Store" (very weird), "The Ignored" (A satire of the way the "Average Joe" is treated - great horror tale), and "The Association", a very creepy neighborhood ran by a creepy Home Owners Association - also features some weird stereotypes about Urban Life verses Rich Suburbian Neighborhoods.

BerlinBibliophile: For Horror and Conspiracy Thrillers, I would suggest Feed by Mira Grant. A zombie novel set decades after the zombie apocalypse when everyone has gotten used to the new normal and the book focuses on politics post-zombies. It's really suspenseful.

Capybara_99: Good choices RidgewayGirl. I'd look at Robert Aickman for weird stories / horror. One new collection is "Compulsory Games" but I don't know is it is the best. (Sat, 01 Dec 2018 14:28:33 -0500)
