Marie’s Favorite Scary Books, Part III: The Revenge of the Scary Book
The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
A creative, gory, and enjoyable zombie read. I talked about it on the blog here.
The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon
A ghost story reminiscent of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, but with a chilling magic all its own. Click here to read more.
Severed by Scott Snyder and Scott Tuft, art by Attila Futaki
Human horror at its finest. A tale of a monster on America’s highways, searching for victims. The artwork is brutal but gorgeous, striking a distinctive and effective balance. This is the blog post about it.
Scowler by Daniel Kraus
A tale of abuse and survival, and the monsters that lurk inside all of us. Thinking about it gives me a bad taste in my mouth. You’ll understand when you read it and get to the end. This one set me so sideways I never wrote a post, so here’s the Goodreads page.
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix
Let’s end on a relatively peppy note! Read my blog post about this inventive, scary, and clever new title here.
