HI! I'm karen, and I'm still pretty new to this website. I've read about 8-10 of Stephen King's books so far, and I am in LOVE! :) Anyone know some other amazing horror writers?

If you like Stephen King, then you will probably enjoy Sarah Pinborough.  Her style reminds me of King's. Of her books, I especially enjoyed Breeding Ground and the sequel, Feeding Ground, but I haven't read any of her books that I didn't enjoy.  Richard Laymon is good for an all-around scare; try Body Rides.  Bentley Little is great, if you have a strong stomach; The Store is my favorite, but I've liked all of his books that begin with "the". For some reason the ones that don't have 'the' in the title haven't been as good.  Susy Moloney has a few good horror books; The Dwelling is one of my favorite haunted house books of all time.  I could go on and on, but these suggestions might be a good jumping off point for you.  Most of these are currently in the system, except for The Store.
