Thought I'd rattle off a list of top ten horror novels. These are novels that always stick with me. Some of them I've re-read and keep on my bookshelf for no other reason that getting rid of them would be like kicking out a friend. I'm probably leaving a ton of books out, but these are the ones that come to mind:
1. The Shining - Stephen King
2. It - Stephen King
3. The Road - Cormac McCarthy
4. Season of Passage - Christopher Pike
5. Phantoms - Dean Koontz
6. The Terror - Dan Simmons
7. Endless Night - Richard Laymon
8. Watchers - Dean Koontz
9. Island - Richard Laymon
10. The Stand - Stephen King
