Although i love horror novels, I have often been just as thrilled by horror's short stories. I recall reading a brillant short story , The Body Politic,by Clive Barker where human hands developed a mind of their own and planned a revolt against the rest of the body. It was a great read!
Mine would have to be:
1. The Reach by Stephen King
2. Iverson's Pits by Dan Simmons (this is a truly great story.)
3. The Minister's Black Veil and Young Goodman Brown by Hawthorne
4. The Body Politic by Clive Barker
5. Best New Horror by Joe Hill
What are some of your favorites?
I read so many short stories that I'm not sure I can decide on the 5 best, but I'll give 5 that I can think of right now that are really good.
Dying in Bankok - Dan Simmons
The Lottery - Shirley Jackson
Murder Mysteries - Neil Gaiman
The Distributer - Richard Matheson
Sometimes They Come Back - Stephen King
I could go on and on with Stephen King since there are so many I love.
Oh man, I know I won't be able to pull my absolute favorites out, but here are some that would be contenders:
Graveyard Shift by Richard Matheson
The Colour Out of Space by Lovecraft
The Aqueduct by Brian Lumley
The Night Wire by H.F. Arnold
Lost in the World by Tanith Lee
