I haven't read Clive in a long time. I like him, but I pref. Robert McCammon, Ramsey Campbell, Peter Straub, John Farris, and Graham Masterton. Have you ever done McCammon's Swan Song? It's highly comparable to King's The Stand, only I'd say Mac's version is much tighter with more out-of-the-box thinking. Of course, imo, the single most disturbing horror piece in print or on film is The Exorcist. Just so freakin' bizarre! And supposedly, it's based on a true story.
Spiders and snakes make for great horror, imo.
I don't come here very often, but I fig. you might've posted s'thing, so I dropped by. If you have things you want to share, feel free to message me.
Oh, and you might want to join The Cop Shop. It's a cool place to hang out!!
