In preparation for writing my next novel, I have delved into compiling a list of horror books to read, as TUBE will be a horror book in a way, a possessed train eating ballerinas. So, I've been mostly scouring lists of best horror books and will read such classics as The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby and The Omen and more. Here is the whole list (about 50 first books on it).
I read about 2 books a week, and it takes me 5-6 months to write a book, so total I will read about 50 books while writing this. But, most horror novels I found have religious undertones or is clicheic. I want to find odd weird bizarre paranormal horror that has nothing to do with religion and is fantastical and terrifying at the same time.
DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY GOOD SUGGESTIONS? (YES, I HAVE LOVECRAFT ON MY LIST.)
