4. The Devil in Gray
By: Graham Masterson

If there are any books, that any of you have read, that are Horror, and thought were good, could you please share them????
One of my favorite all time horror books has always been Amityville Horror. Granted I'm not old enough to have read it before it was made in to a movie, but I did read it before it was made in to a movie...again. If you've never read it give it a shot. You either love it or you don't, I've found with a lot of people there is no in between on this one.

I'll try and check out some of the ones you posted up here when I'm done with my next four books.

I noticed you had Graham Masterton on your list of books you rented from the library. He comes highly recommended. One of my favourite authors. Although I haven't read The Devil In Grey. I'd recommened:
The Manitou series(Manitou, Revenge of The Manitou, Buriel, Blood Of The Manitou)
Charnel House
The Pariah
The Hymn

Other authors:

James Herbert (The Rats trilogy(The Rats, Lair, Domain), The Fog)
Shaun Hutson (Slug, White Ghost)
Clive Barker (Books of Blood, Hellboud Heart)
Richard Laymon - all of them.

I'm not sure about proper horror stories, but I can reccommend a few terror anthologies like "Masterpieces of Terror and the Supernatural"


Recently I have really been getting into H.P. Lovecraft (<i>The Best of H.P. Lovecraft: Blood Curdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre<i>). I even have my own Cthulu plushie, he has a santa hat and little plush jingle bells on the end of his tentacles ^.^ He looks so precious and yet so pissed off at the same time o_O Course if I was a tentacle God monster, I would get pissed off if I had to wear a fuzzy santa hat and have jingle bells on the end of my face tentacles... anyway

Cthulu Fghtagn!
