I read Asylum by Madeleine Roux, and absolutely loved it. The entire story and the photos within it intrigued me. I have heard that there are two more, Sanctum and Catacomb, but I have yet to read those. Has anyone else? Are they good?

What are some horror and/or mystery books that you have read?

I'd recommend just about anything written by Stephen King.

The ghost stories by Sarah Rayne are enjoyable for a fireside read in the winter. I also highly recommend Susan Hill; the movie The Woman in Black (which, if you haven't seen, is great) is based on a novella of hers. Classic ghost stories.

I still prefer the classics; Edgar Allan Poe, Agatha Christie, Robert Bloch, HP Lovecraft, August Derleth, Mickey Spillane, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Ray Bradbury and Arthur Conan Doyle. I love a good mystery. For more recent authors (within the last 2 decades) I prefer James Patterson, Jeff Rice, CJ Henderson and Rex Miller.

Junji Ito - if you want some manga. (His hero is HP Lovecraft!) Read Uzumaki if you haven't yet. Be careful though - his stuff is really really scary and sneaks up on you when you least expect it. Stay away from Gyo. Scared for life. Enjoy

I'm currently reading Ambrose Bierce; he's quite surprising, no wonder Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard and Robert W. Chambers held him in such regard.



I got the chills reading that, and that is no small feat.

Any of the stuff by john ajvide linqvist.

He's most famous for Let the right one in (the book is much more heavy going compared to the rather tame film). All his stuff is great, maybe save for handling the undead which was a bit lacklustre

Anything by Darren Shan. His books are not a particularly hard read but the way he writes is fantastic.

I've only read one horror book and that was The Crimson Labyrinth by Yusuke Kishi and it's amazing. I ordered the book as soon as I read the synopsis. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/55448.The_Crimson_Labyrinth

Edgar Allen Poe books are classic.

For both Horror and Mystery gotta go with Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Childs. Great read and it introduces one of my all time favorite literary heroes of all time Special Agent Pendergast. This is the first book in his series and written by them as a team and so far is my favorite of the batch. That doesn't mean the others aren't great. They are amazing, but Relic has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish, especially during the third act

I don't normally read novels, but I absolutely adore The Lurker at the Threshold by H.P. Lovecraft.and August Derleth.
I give it a strong recommendation if you like mystery and supernatural phenomena.
