The CHE Weigh in on Horror Lit--Be Prepared, It's Coming

After having polled the best and brightest of the online horror blogging/writing community on a whole bunch of movie-related topics in the past, I have finally decided (at the suggestion of the Vault's own RayRay) to focus the spotlight at long last on the written word. That's right, here in The Vault of Horror we still value books--bold concept, wouldn't you say?

I currently have emails out to a vast array of online pundits, asking for their own personal lists of the finest horror novels, short stories and/or poems. There is still some time for all the submissions to come in, but even at this time I've already gotten responses from the likes of Fascination with Fear, Evil on Two Legs, The Moon Is a Dead World, John Muir's Reflections on Film and TV, Cinema Suicide, Musings Across a Continuum, Uranium Cafe, Billy Loves Stu, McBeardo's Midnight Movies, Zombos' Closet of Horror and Kim Paffenroth's Gospel of the Living Dead.

Deadline for submissions happens later this week, so hopefully I will be able to tally the results for your perusal during next week. So get ready for the "Cyber Horror Elite" to direct its attention to the likes of King, Poe, Lovecraft, Stoker, Rice and all the rest of the genre's greatest scribes. I'm hoping it will make for some interesting debate, and maybe even give you some ideas for future reading...

Should we be girding our loins for the inevitable outrage over the choices?

Oh, no question. With this question, the controversy has already begun during the tallying process! Should be a barn-burner.

Can't wait! I know I'm going to be debating. Very curious to see the breakdown between modern and older horror.
