9 Horror Books - Page 2 of 3


One Rainy Night
A strange black rain falls on the town of Bixby and, one by one, the inhabitants fall prey to its horrifying effects. Filled with hate and rage, former neighbors become enemies with the need to kill. If you've missed Laymon, you've missed a treat! --Stephen King.

Shirley Jackson's American Gothic
Best known for her short story The Lottery and her novel The Haunting of Hill House, Shirley Jackson produced a body of work that is more varied and complex than critics have realized. In fact, as Darryl Hattenhauer argues here, Jackson was one of the few writers to anticipate the transition from modernism to postmodernism, and therefore ranks among the most significant writers of her time. The first comprehensive study of all of Jackson's fiction, Shirley Jackson's American Gothic offers readers the chance not only to rediscover her work, but also to see how and why a major American writer was passed over for inclusion in the canon of American literature.

Stephen King's Danse Macabre
The master of horror explores the phenomenon of horror in a century of film, television, radio, and literature in his first work of non-fiction now available in this newly repackaged edition.

Stephen King: The Second Decade, Danse Macabr
The popular success of Stephen King's novels is, of course, a fact beyond dispute. Perhaps because of his popularity, however, he has been denigrated or ignored by most literary critics and scholars. A previous volume in Twayne's United States Authors Series, Joseph Reino's Stephen King: The First Decade, Carrie to Pet Sematary (1988) redressed the balance for King's works published between 1974 and 1983. In the present work, Tony Magistrale takes a critical look at the novels and non-fiction of King's second decade, devoting extended analyses to King's critical study of the horror genre, Danse Macabre, and to the novels published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman. Magistrale shows that King cannot be confined to the reductive categories of genre fiction. Rather, the master of the macabre has drawn on many literary traditions from both high culture and low culture in the composition of his novels. Moreover, Magistrale makes a convincing case that King's art has a depth and subtlety rarely found either among serious or popular writers, and that his work is characterized by an astute knowledge of fundamental American myths and archetypes. Especially notable features of this book include the extensive interview with Stephen King that makes up the bulk of the first chapter, and the author's insightful and well-informed analysis of the gothic inheritance . Stephen King: The Second Decade is an important revaluation of a fascinating writer, and will appeal to students and scholars of American literature and popular culture.
