  • The Woman in White (1860) by Wilkie Collins

The Shining was awesome.

I would add Misery to that list if you haven't read it yet.

Hi, BB, I've actually read most of Stephen King's stuff. I have no idea why I left this list so short but I've tried to flesh it out a little. Thanks!

I forgot to metion World War Z. I have read it twice. Not your typical scary novel, but because of the journalistic way that it is presented, it really makes you think. It hurt my brain, but I managed to do it anyway.

"Who Made Stevie Crye?" is awesome. Is it scary? Maybe a little, but it's mostly very "meta", and a lot of fun.

"I Am Legend", now that's frickin' scary.

"The Cellar" is the most lowdown, despicable, amoral piece of junk I've ever read, and I loved every page of it.
