Writing Tips for Horror Fiction
If you enjoy writing and are interested in trying your hand at horror, here are a few tips and ideas to get you started.
Women in Horror Literature – The Classics
Horror stories have been around since the early days of men but until recent times women authors who dabbled in the genre were few and far between. The three historical favorites include Shelley, Gilman, and Jackson.
Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King - Book Review
The Dark Tower series is King’s epic adventure of one lone man out to save the world – or an infinity of worlds as the reader comes to find out. Book Five – Wolves of the Calla – is a temporary diversion on the path to The Dark Tower.
Who is H. P. Lovecraft?
H.P. Lovecraft is one of horror writer's greats, yet many people don't know who he is. Whether you know of him and enjoy his writings or not, a horror literature site would not be complete without a study of his writing.

Under The Dome by Stephen King Book Review
If you're a Stephen King horror fan, be sure and check out my review of "Under the Dome".
Types of Horror Fiction
Organizing horror literature is tricky but there are two basic types - that of the supernatural world and that of the real, or non-supernatural, world. Within those basic types we can break it down even farther to find what we are looking for.
The Turtle Boy by Burke – Book Review
Summer is out and two boys go exploring. An ordinary childhood trip to the local pond turns creepy in a hurry and 11 year old Timmy Quinn is left trying to figure out why.
The Cthulhu Mythos
If the Cthulhu Mythos sounds like something out of a horror novel, it is. It can even lay claim to being it’s own genre within horror literature.
The Burning Time by JG Faherty - Book Review
In this classic small town environment, the author mixes a generous amount of good vs evil with a bit of romance and a pinch of magic to create The Burning Time. He makes writing look easy with this excellent, fast-paced read.
