I'd suggest Poe and Lovecraft to start. Neither wrote nvoles but they have plenty of great short stories which you can buy in compilations. I suggest the American Library Editions. Alot of modern horror has its roots in Lovecraft, it's one of those things when you read you go, Oh, so that's where this movie got that idea from and so on. Stephen King's always good as well. Try The Shining , Pet Cemetary , and Salem's Lot .Poe is about psychological horror and Lovecraft is about weird horror (i.e. situations and things so strange that they're disturbing and unsettling); HPL also likes to focus on the occult and such. Poe, anything's good. Of the Lovecraft I've read, I'd suggest:Short Stories:The Lurking FearTHe Music of Erich ZannThe Rats in the Walls (Read this one very carefully, what makes it unsettling lies beneath the surface)Novellas:At the Mountains of MadnessCall of CthulhuShadow of InnsmuthYou can find the short stories online, but I've only read about 7. I'm sure there are better ones.
