Wake of the Raven
2.  Wake of the Raven by Graham Worthington

Depraved
3.  Depraved 
The list author says:
  "An extreme of horror is to shoot for complete grossness, with plenty of bloood, hatchets and cannibalism, as in this tale of small town evil. I'll refrain from asking if there was enough mustard."

Exquisite Corpse
4.  Exquisite Corpse by Poppy Z. Brite
The list author says:
  "With plenty of murder and cannibalism in her story, Ms. Bright proves that the ladies can pile up horror too. Blood as thick and bright as a whore's lipstick. Arrrrgghh!"
CDN$ 12.40   Used & New from: CDN$ 0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (112 customer reviews)

Killing Kind
5.  Killing Kind by Byran Smith
The list author says:
  "....because horror need not necessarily involve walking dead, ghosts, etc. A firm and ruthless intention on their part to kill you is quite horrible and scary enough without such flourishes."
Used & New from: CDN$ 0.01

American Psycho
6.  American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
The list author says:
  "In this 1991 work, the deterioration of a confused mind leads to murder as a hobby. Here, the physical gruesomenes of the slayings is a platform on which to mount an attack on society's indifference."
CDN$ 12.96   Used & New from: CDN$ 4.40
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (965 customer reviews)

Lunar Park
7.  Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis
The list author says:
  "Some years later this author tried to revive his failed career with this semi-autobiographical novel, the horror of setting it in a haunted house to balanced the narrator's attempts at redemption."
CDN$ 13.68   Used & New from: CDN$ 3.15
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

The Wasp Factory: A Novel
8.  The Wasp Factory: A Novel by Iain Banks
The list author says:
  "To this mutilated teenage hero, horror is an occasional relief from boredom, and accidental as often as not. One could say that in this strange coming of age story, horror is of the usual teenage kind"
Used & New from: CDN$ 4.38
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (84 customer reviews)

Zorn: A Legend of the Days to Come
9.  Zorn: A Legend of the Days to Come by Graham Worthington
The list author says:
  "Drawing on challenges of my youth, I wrote this coming of age novel, set 2035. Here the horror is one that we all face at some times, without need of vampires: illness of a socially unacceptable kind."
CDN$ 16.64   Used & New from: CDN$ 10.14
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)
