Steven King tops the list! I lived in Maine for a while, so I feel connected
I don't like horror novels so I don't have a favorite writer, However I know of Stephen King and I would love to read something of his that wasn't filled with horror and scary.
Midget......Hope you welcome a comment from a "non-fiction," reader. Horror, as I'm sure you are referring to, is not my thing....at all. I don't view horror flicks, watch that type of TV program nor do I seek out that genre of reading material. For no other reason, than the fact that it does not appeal to me.
However, if we can stretch the term "horror," a bit......I do read anything I can get my hands on, in terms of True Life Crime. I'm sure most are well aware that Truth can be stranger and much more "frightening" than any fiction. I have read so many of these books by multiple authors, that I would need to go through that long list, to choose a favorite one. Suffice it to say, the very best authors of True Crime are the ones who have done extensive and impeccable research of the facts and every gory detail......They are definitely "Horror-filled."
Hope my comment is acceptable............
A tie between Clive Barker and Peter Straub. They seem more "literary" than most out there, though Stephen King's "Gunslinger" series was excellent.
My favorite horror novelist is R.L.Stine who wrote many horror fiction novels for children. When I was a school student, I read many of his famous Goosebumps horror novel series and they were indeed grippingly entertaining!
