In my opinion, Joyce Carol Oates writes the best horror books. They aren't the supernatural type of horror or over the top horror. The quiet horribleness of her stories is what makes them so scary to me.

@boomerang,
I remember being floored when I first read a short story of hers, Haunted, which was featured in the defunct 1980's magazine, Omni. It merely depicted a visit to a grocery store and not much else happened. The starkness of her description ... insanely chilling. Was the apocalypse an implied character? Impossible to say.

That story was later collected as the title story in her anthology, Haunted: Tales of the Grotesque.

@tsarstepan,
I wish that was available for Kindle! I'm home sick and could totally do some JCO today and that sounds really good.

"The Corn Maiden" was the story that sucked me in to reading her work.

@boomerang,
Those are the best. The more believable it is, the more paranoid it makes you when you hear a noise in your house.
