My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

IT is the Best Horror Novel Ever (Or is IT?)

Best Horror Novel Ever?
It, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Song of Kali: is this the proper order for the best books in the horror genre?  Vote today!

Don't forget to vote in our poll.  Everyone gets 2 (two) votes.

Oddly enough, Tommyknockers has gotten only a single vote and Pet Sematary has only gotten four.  You all were so enthusiastic about writing how terrifying those books were during the nomination process.  Now they seem like the book poll equivalent of your cousin who friended you last week on Facebook but doesn't ever check Snopes.

There are currently two tiers of votes (one in the low teens and one in the 4-6 range) that are practically too close to tell.  While there's one reader promising that he will break the poll and make Song of Kali win (which would be fun to see, as it is quite good) I will believe that when I see it.

I also am fascinated by how well classic horror has done on this poll.  In most of our other polls, classic titles have done well, but always under a chunk of contemporaries.  In this poll they're in the second and third spot and could pull out a win.  Interesting.
