Obviously the master of horror Stephen King , IT is my favourite book of all time.
H.P. Lovecraft is great when I'm in the right frame of mind to absorb his weird mythos.
I'm actually enjoying Joe Hill's stuff lately, particularly Heart Shaped Box.

The fact that no one has put Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves in here is a goddamn crime against horror.

Other than that I'll add that King is fun to read but I actually prefer his Bachman books to his newer stuff. Pet Semetary and Cujo remain up there for some of my favourite classic King.

Yukito Ayatsuji is always a good time too, shame that Another had such a mediocre anime release.

Ludmila petrushevskaya writes some really good short stories, though they are more eerie than horror.

If you like anthologies and short horror stories you'd like this one pretty good
I think.

If you like completely screwed up serial killer books
with a splash of detailed necrophilia..you'll probably
be a fan of this one.

I liked Exquisite Corpse due to the look into
the killer's mind. It's not "poorly" written
but it's definitely different.

I read quite a bit of horror, but this story more than any other stuck with me & showed me what monsters people can be.

Of course Mary Shelly's Frankenstein is classic and loved Horror story. Lovecraft is a wonderful look into darkness and madness. One of my all time favorites though is the novel Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Childs. It is a great mystery, very suspenseful, terrifying, and just a good monster mystery.

Stephen King and Dean Koontz are among the top horror authors I enjoy. King just has a way of really getting into your head. To this day It and The Shining still terrify me.

I am a fan of Anne Rice, but I am not sure I consider this horror so much as gothic. She is a beautiiful writer though for sure. I loved the Vampire Chronicles.
Amityville Horror by Jay Anson was another one of my favorites.

I also enjoyed Ghost Story (Peter Straub) and The Exocist (William Peter Blatty).

I will always recommend classics such as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelly's Frankenstein and the works of Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft

Another shout out for Lovecraft. Hard to choose one among his work.

I have a lot of favorite authors, but my top favorite writers would have to be Yukito Ayatsuji (Another), Ray Bradbury (Something Wicked This Way Comes), Stephen King (It; Joyland; Pet Sematary; Revival), Arthur Machen (The Great God Pan), and Otsuichi (Zoo short story collection).
I would like to post more, but then I would be rambling and end up writing too much information.
