As Halloween approaches I can’t help but reminisce about the creepiest books I’ve read over the last ten years. These books left me in such a horrified state, that until this day, I still remember the effect they had on me. Don’t get me wrong, but some people think scary is slashers and serial killers. The thing that really leaves me sleepless is not from this world. These novels are so soul chilling, they still creeps me out. Don’t believe me? Give them a try. You’ll think twice about walking into a dark room at night. Happy Halloween and Cheers, Garrard Hayes
The Throne of Bones by Brian McNaughton
I’ve never read anything like it before or since. A dark fantasy world where nothing is as it seems. An old town with a large cemetery that is unable to contain the evil that lives within its walls. Enough ghouls, monsters and zealots to satisfy the most callused Horror fan.
Song of Kali by Dan Simmons
A reporter from America takes his family with him to India to investigate a dead poet that’s started writing again.
The Elementals by Michael McDowell
A southern family goes to the Alabama Gulf shore to spend a relaxing summer at a beautiful beachfront retreat. Something old and dark is living there and it doesn’t want to leave.
Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill
