Horror/Thrillers

Hi~

I've been looking around to see if anyone has started a thread about Horror/Thrillers but haven't found one, except for the area dedicated to Stephen King. Is there one that I've just missed? If not, was wondering if a bookclub could be started OR if Horror could fit into any current ones?

Thanks,
Mayumi

Re: Horror/Thrillers

I stopped reading Stephen King and started reading Tess Gerritsen, Philip Margolin, Harlan Coban, Robert B. Parker. I even got tired of James Patterson. I don't know if they're horror/thrillers, but they kept my attention. There are others, but I can't remember them right now.

I have heard of Tess Geritan but have never read her. I will have to get one of her books and try it.

Tess Gerritsen's books are really good Kiakar! I've read a lot of hers and they're suspense/mystery style. She was a doctor so her early books are medical thrillers. I bet you'll like them.

Re: Horror/Thrillers

Has anyone found other reasonable discussion groups on here along the clive barker/hp lovecraft vein?

Hi Barker,
Check out the Paranormal discussion. (Click Here.) I bet you could find people with similar interests.
Enjoy!

I was just thinking the same thing. Especially since now it is October and it is the perfect month to do a horror discussion.

And Stephen King is not the only Horror author, we should have a whole board for horror.

And Dracula is not the only horror book.

Let's expand.
"But I don't want to go among mad people."
"Oh, you can't help that. Most everyone's mad here. You may have noticed that I'm not all there myself."
