I need some new books =] New authors =] I also love Anne Rice=]
Have you tried Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon or Brian Keene? Love all three of them.
How about Bentley Little? Just started my second book by him and its great.
I too vote for Bentley Little(Ive read most of his books).Also-Clive Barker:)
Try Robert McCammon. If you liked The Stand, then start with McCammon's Swan's Song. You might also like Sarah Pinborough and Jack Ketchum.
Edward Lee, Jonathan Maberry and James A. Moore. These are all wonderful authors as are all the other ones mentioned.
You need to read all of Clive Barker's stuff...it's "Haute-Horror"...if you catch my drift.
I would recommend Simon Clark and Shirley Jackson.
Thank you for your patience
