Sunday Halloween Fun: 10 chillers to tingle your spine

Oct 31 2010 Published by under friday fun, science fiction

Canadian horror/dark fantasy writer Kelley Armstrong has a nice list of 10 favourite horror novels in a recent issue of the Globe and Mail.

Here it is:

Armstrong talks about the entries in the original article.

I've read half of them, with a couple more on my to-be-read list. How about you?

    Great list! The Shining will always be my favorite.

    Shirley Jackson's writing always made (and still makes) me shiver. Read the opening paragraph of "The Haunting of Hill House" and see if you don't have a little dread about what will happen.

    Huh, I've read them all and don't even really consider myself a horror fan.

    They're all definitely at least a little good, although I didn't enjoy the James. I was probably too young for it at the time. My current favourite from the list is Let Me In. (Also I don't know if I'd count Relic as the same quality level as the rest of them, but it's a page turner for sure. And I'd probably suggest a different Barker, but I'm not sure which one. Maybe some of the Books of Blood.)
