Horror that's slightly off the beaten track
A Taste for Horror is for discussion of horror, gothic and dark fantasy literature. The intention is to concentrate mostly on slightly non-mainstream horror writers – so we won’t be discussing Stephen King and Dean Koontz. We’re not anti-King or Koontz, but there are plenty of groups to discuss writers like that, we just want to specialise in the slightly less well-known authors.
Authors like Robert Aickman, Nancy Baker, Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Poppy Z. Brite, Ramsey Campbell, Robert W. Chambers, Jonathan Carroll, Simon Clark, Douglas Clegg, Nancy Collins, Stephen Dedman, Thomas M. Disch, P. N. Elrod, Mick Farren, Christa Faust, Barbara Hambly, Graham Joyce, Jeanne Kalogridis, Caitlin Kiernan, T. E. D. Klein, Tim Lebbon, Kathe Koja, Tanith Lee, Thomas Ligotti, Kelly Link, Patrick McGrath, Richard Matheson, China Miéville, Kim Newman, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Lucius Shepard, S. P. Somtow, Lucy Taylor, Melanie Tem, Steve Rasnic Tem, Lisa Tuttle, Karl Edward Wagner, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. Vampire, werewolf, zombie and ghost stories.
