Also, for recs, M.R. James is a great shout by Rebel, as is Shirley Jackson, be sure to read The Lottery. Also check out some Ramsey Campbell, Thomas Ligotti, E.F. Benson, Karl Edward Wagner, Robert Bloch, Poe, J.S. Le Fanu, Arthur Machen, Charlotte Perkins Gilman's amazing The Yellow Wallpaper, Chamber's King in Yellow, Algernon Blackwood, W.F. Harvey, William Hope Hodgson, Oliver Onions, Kafka, L.P. Hartley, Clark Ashton Smith, Charles Birkin, Hugh Cave, Henry Kuttner's Graveyard Rats, Manly Wade Wellman, Fritz Leiber, L.T.C. Rolt, Ray Bradbury (Especially The October Game), Richard Matheson, Robert Aickman, Charles Beaumont, Basil Copper, if you can get hold of the stuff Alex White did for the Pan books, and of course, Pigeons from Hell.

Forgetting loads, but there's a shortlist for you.


Looks like I'll have plenty to read in the next few weeks. Don't be surprised if I ask for a deadline extension.

Have you ever read The Gas by Charles Platt?

quote:

An accident at a secret germ-warfare laboratory allows an aphrodisiac vapor to infect all of Southern England, and within 24 hours the British countryside has exploded into an uncontrollable nightmare of lust, perversion, violence and insanity, as men, women, and children act out their deepest and weirdest obsessions and compulsions in Charles Platt's unique and explicit underground novel of sex and degeneration. Not for the faint-hearted.


Amazing stuff.

Just found this site, it has a regular podcast on all different aspects of horror. Thought some of you may like to check it out. I don't know how good it is, but it looks interesting.

Sold. It sounds like the same kind of perverted stuff that Edward Lee writes and I love his work. Now I just have to track down a copy. It seems to be out of print/stock on Amazon but I'm sure I'll find it somewhere. Thanks for the heads up.

The publisher, Savoy Books, did still have copies you could order direct. It's also worth browsing some of their other stuff too.

I'm going to need to change the deadline on this and move it forward to the beginning of September. Still gives everyone the best part of two months though.

Bumping this because everything went a bit haywire and the deadline got missed. I'm going to set the deadline for all lists as Halloween, hopefully you'll be watching and reading plenty of horror in the run-up.

Hopefully all HOF members will have Van Helsing fresh in their minds and place it in their top 10s!

I'm hoping for a top 10 placement for the mind-blowing, genre-changing remake of The Woman in Black.

EDIT-Also, can we have individual stories from short story collections? For instance, can I pick 1408 out of Everything's Eventual?

EDIT EDIT-And can I vote for Rocky Horror?

Yes and yes. Anything horror related is fine, remember we changed it to be a general horror poll rather than just films/individual t.v. eps?

Yeah, I just wasn't sure if we said you could pick out individual short stories.

Plus Rocky Horror is borderline as hell .

Thanks.

Yeah, they're fine. Just as individual episodes of a t.v. series are fine.

I've sent off a list of forty. Apart from the Top 5, the list is in no real order of preference, so no bitching from Rawlinson, please. I might like to write a blurb for my third choice if that's OK.

Well, Van Helsing is certainly horrifying, just in the wrong way.

Sent a list of 100, grimly resigning myself to being the only one to vote for any video games .

I think it'll sadly have to be extended, not a lot of lists in so far.

The Damned Thing (Bierce), The Alter of the Dead (Henry James) and The Monkey's Paw (which I haven't read for years and all I can think about is that Simpsons episode) are the main three.

Are there any others I should check out?
