Horror, weird fiction, mystery, crime, noir, short stories, conspiracy thrillers, literary fiction. Favorite authors include Thomas Pynchon, Shirley Jackson, Stephen Graham Jones, Brian Evenson, Ramsey Campbell, Ellen Datlow anthologies

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...

Secret Santa

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. (Thu, 29 Nov 2018 13:50:17 -0500)

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. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 04:48:56 -0500)

RidgewayGirl: Maybe Duane Swierczynski's Fun and Games, In a Lonely Place by Dorothy B. Hughes or Queen Pin by Megan Abbott. (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 09:39:46 -0500)

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)

RidgewayGirl: azs320, I had a great deal of fun hunting for books I thought you might like. Hope you enjoy this one!
