holy zamboni!

It’s a rare year in which a superabundance of fine horror novels — novels that reward rereading — appears. That said, most years bring at least a handful of novels whose titles can stand to be mentioned alongside Matheson’s I Am Legend, Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, and King’s The Shining. To this year’s list, add Laird Barron’s The Croning.

Thanks to Ms. Reid, I have this on my TBR shelf! It was my prize from May's flash fiction contest. Now I am definitely going to read it for Halloween. :)

Thanks for the heads up, Janet. I love to be spooked, but seldom get the chills. A good creep is hard to find.

Guilty confession: I've never read a full horror novel. I am such a wimp.

Even the cover scares me.
