Of course, some of it is awful (yes Mr Carlton Mellik III, I'm looking at you). Authors such as Clive Barker, Poppy Z. Brite, Jack Ketchum, Joe R. Lansdale, Richard Laymon, Richard Matheson, and many others have been considered to have produced works in this sub-genre. I've even had a go myself....
