I love reading and writing horror stories, and as my favourite and specialist genre I have devour hundreds of horror stories by some of my favourite horror writers over time. Here are the top three that are so imaginative and so emotive that these books will keep you up at night:
The Taking By Dean Koontz
The Taking is not only my favourite horror novel, but it is also my favourite novel ever. Written by suspense thriller American novelist Dean Knootz, who follows Stephen King closely as one of the best American horror writers in the world, The Taking is as perfect a horror story as you can get.
"Big Bads" in a TV show are a terrifying character that over-arches the whole season, frequently getting away from the heroes of the show and living to terrorise another day.

Besides being able to sell ice to Eskimos, Rod Serling had the immense power to terrify in this black and white fantasy/horror/mystery hybrid of a TV show, where ordinary people find themselves in extraordinarily astounding situations that they each try to solve in a remarkable manner.
