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

Reminder: Nominations Needed (Best horror not by a cis het white man)

What is the very best horror book (or possibly series?) written by a woman or POC or member of the LGBTQ+ community? 

This poll is from our Year of Diverse Polls. Please check this page out if you have questions about the narrowed focus.

If it doesn't get nominated and seconded (and maybe thirded) it won't end up on our poll. Please go to the original post for rules and to drop your nomination. Come nominate your faves.


  1. I nominate Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

  2. I Wish I Was Like You by SP Miskowski

  3. I would ;like to nominate the book I am currently reading "The School For Good and Evil" by Soman Chainani. Not sure it would traditionally be classified as horror, but there are some pretty horrifying things, such as children being turned into animals if they get low grades at school and forced to live their lives in servitude (one little boy gets murdered just as he is turning back into a human from the gargoyle he has been), two children being kidnapped by a shadow creature every four years in order to attend this school... it's sort of a "The dark truth behind fairy tales" type story.
