I need help finding some interesting horror books. I just finished a few dozen vampire stories and need a break from them. I'm also burned out on werewolves and shapeshifters. Zombies have never interested me. I used to read stories centered around demons or nasty ghosts but can't really find any that sound interesting anymore. Some of my favorite horror authors were Rick Hautala, Ed Kelleher, Jay Anson,Joseph Citro, Leigh Clark, and Lee Duigon. Those are the only names I can remeber off hand. Any help would be appreciated.

That leaves out a lot that i read.  What about disaster books.  there are a lot of great disaster books out there.  I'll try to look up the titles and let you know.  There is a good link in the hidden jems forum if you search for post-apocalyptic.  Brian keene has a few books that are not zombies but they are demon/ghost/mutant type.  Good luck.  Just thought of:  jf gonzales has a good one- survivor.  it is about a horrific kidnapping.  very graphic and not for the faint of heart.

Take a look at Sarah Pinborough, Wrath James White, and Gord Rollo.

Thought of a few other authors you might want to look at, Ronald Malfi and Susie Moloney.
