Tales from the crypt. In the spirit of the season I've posted some suggestions for what I consider hair raising reading. Truly disturbing expeditions in to the dark inner regions of the human psyche by writers who wrote about horror from an internal perspective. True horror fiction reveals that what is really frightening isn't what's outside on dark nights but what's inside our minds and hearts even in the realms of day. These our writers who really have explored the darker aspects of human experience and had the gift to explain it. Unlike mediocre talents like Stephen King and Clive Barker whose pedestrian imaginations can only create cheap carnival ride imitations of fear that don't begin to even scratch the surface of the real thing. Here are a few writers who actually made the journey and lived long enough to write about it.
