The movie was a masterpiece. The book, not so much.

The remake of the original movie is junk.

I nominate Noctuary, by Thomas Ligotti:



ePub from Kobo here.

Kindle format from Amazon here.

Mr. Ligotti's web site here (where I've often found other books not written by Ligotti himself).

A sampling of Noctuary's reviews on Goodreads.

Alternatives by the same writer: My Work Here Is Not Yet Done and Teatro Grottesco.

I'll nominate The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks. Still my favourite of his (and I have a personally signed copy )

Quote:
Frank, no ordinary sixteen-year-old, lives with his father outsIde a remote Scottish village. Their life is, to say the least, unconventional. Frank's mother abandoned them years ago: his elder brother Eric is confined to a psychiatric hospital; and his father measures out his eccentricities on an imperial scale. Frank has turned to strange acts of violence to vent his frustrations. In the bizarre daily rituals there is some solace. But when news comes of Eric's escape from the hospital Frank has to prepare the ground for his brother's inevitable return - an event that explodes the mysteries of the past and changes Frank utterly.


Iain Banks' celebrated first novel is a work of extraordinary originality, imagination and horrifying compulsion: horrifying, because it enters a mind whose realities are not our own, whose values of life and death are alien to our society; and compulsive, because the humour and compassion of that mind reach out to us all.
ePub from Kobo here.

Kindle format from Amazon UK here or USA here.

orlok, I didn't list the U.S. Amazon link, as the book is unavailable in the United States.

Wow, folks. I had no idea the nominations for horror would go so slow. We may end up with less than 10 choices this month. That's not a bad thing, just surprising.

I'll use my last nomination on The Shining by Stephen King.

Spoiler:
From Barnes & Noble:

First published in 1977, The Shining quickly became a benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed, and the hotel itself attempts to claim the very souls of the Torrance family. Adapted into a cinematic masterpiece of horror by legendary director Stanley Kubrick - featuring an unforgettable performance by a demonic Jack Nicholson - The Shining stands as a cultural icon of modern horror, a searing study of a family torn apart, and a nightmarish glimpse into the dark recesses of human weakness and dementia.

That's strange, as I can see it listed as a Kindle Edition when I look on the USA site.

What I see is different. It may be because you're not blocked from purchasing it in your country.

I can't third it now, but I would love to read The Wasp Factory; I just wasn't sure how well it fit this month's genre.
