Yeah, I'll nominate it....it's not everyone's cup of tea, and I would equate the book to a "slasher movie" but it was a fun read, if something that disgusting can be fun.

I nominate The Advetures of Whatley Tupper by our very own Rudy Kerkhoven. It's not all comedy, btw. There are sad moments in it too.

actually maybe a more fitting nomination for the category would be the group written "draculas" ebook by ja konrath and his co-authors. but that doesn't release until halloween i think.

or does a book have to have ghosts and stuff to be "horror" or does "thriller" also apply? i can think of some good thrillers by indie authors, no less.

Let the Right One In (US Title - Let Me In) by John Ajvide Lindqvist. I'm currently reading this and it's really good!

From the publisher:
Quote:
Set in 1983,Let Me In is the horrific tale of Oskar and Eli. It begins with the grizzly discovery of the body of a teenage boy, emptied of blood. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for all the bad things the bullies at school do to him, day after day. While Oskar is fascinated by the murder, it is not the most important thing in his life. A new girl has moved in next door—a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s cube before, but who can solve it at once. They become friends. Then something more. But there is something wrong with her, something odd. And she only comes out at night. . . .

I nominate "The House on the Borderland" by William Hope Hodgson.

In 1877, two gentlemen, Messrs Tonnison and Berreggnog, head into Ireland to spend a week fishing in the village of Kraighten. Whilst there, they discover in the ruins of a very curious house a diary of the man who had once owned it. Its torn pages seem to hint at an evil beyond anything that existed on this side of the curtains of impossibility (Wikipedia)

I won't be nominating or seconding anything this month because the book I want to read -- Risen by Jan Strnad -- has already been nominated, seconded, and thirded. The short stories were a hoot. Can't wait to read the novel.

I have to nominate "At the Mountains of Madness" by H.P.Lovecraft:
On an expedition to Antarctica, Professor William Dyer and his colleagues discover the remains of ancient half-vegetable, half-animal life-forms. The extremely early date in the geological strata is surprising because of the highly-evolved features found in these previously unknown life-forms. Through a series of dark revelations, violent episodes, and misunderstandings, the group learns of Earth's secret history and legacy.
I have probably read it about 20 times and it still fascinates me.
